Jorik Hendrickx (born 18 May 1992) is a Belgian figure skater. He is a two-time Belgian national champion and has won six senior international medals. He represented Belgium at the 2014 Winter Olympics, finishing 16th, and has placed in the top ten at four European Championships.

Personal life[edit]

Jorik Hendrickx was born in Turnhout, Belgium.[1] He studied sport marketing and management at Johan Cruyff University in Tilburg.[2] In early 2017, he began an internship at Speedo, working on a research project.[3] At All Sport Benelux, his research focuses on the growth of Belgian e-commerce.[4] His younger sister, Loena, is also a figure skater.[5]

Career[edit]

Hendrickx began training at age five and a half.[6] Since the age of 10, he is coached by Carine Herrygers.[6] He began competing on the junior level internationally in 2007. He was out for four months in 2008 as a result of a groin injury.[7] He debuted on the ISU Junior Grand Prix series in autumn 2009.

Hendrickx finished 9th at the 2012 European Championships. The next season, he received his first senior Grand Prix assignment, the 2012 Trophee Eric Bompard in November. Hendrickx placed 4th in the short program,[8] but had to withdraw the next day after sustaining an injury in an off-ice warmup for the morning practice.[9] He fractured his ankle, tearing ligaments from his fibula.[10][11][12] Returning to the ice in January 2013, Hendrickx began practicing some jumps toward the end of the month.[13] He missed the 2013 European Championships but competed at the 2013 World Championships, finishing 19th and qualifying a men's entry for Belgium at the 2014 Winter Olympics. He finished 16th.[7]

After Turnhout's ice rink closed, Hendrickx decided to train at a temporary rink. He said, "It's extremely cold and the quality of the ice is not what it should be. The most important thing is that I didn't have to change environment, my school, coaches, medical team."[3] He finished 4th at the 2017 European Championships in Ostrava, Czech Republic. It was the best result by a Belgian skater since 2009.[3]
