Simon Delestre (born 21 June 1981) is a French equestrian. His specialty is show jumping, either individually or as part of a team. Delestre ranks thirty-seventh on the FEI Rolex Ranking List.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Simon Delestre was born 21 June 1981 in Metz, France, the son of Marcel Delestre.[2] His father, a former international rider, got Delestre interested in equestrianism at a young age.[2] Delestre tried many sports as a child, but a pony named Panama du Cassou HN gave him a taste for riding.[2]

Delestre's stables are located in the structure of his parents Marcel and Magalis' home in Solgne.[3]

Recently when asked if he had any hobbies, Delestre said "No time for that."[4]

Career[edit]

After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in 1999, Delestre was crowned the gold medalist at the France Junior Championships and continued that year to win bronze as part of a team in the European Junior Championships.[2] The following year he won the gold medal with his team at the European Championship for Young Riders.[2] Delestre then continued his career in both Pro and Pro Elite races, as well as international events such as the Nations Cup, CSI-5*, and the World Cup Circuit.[2]

In 2011, Delestre was selected to be a reserve rider at the European Championships in Madrid, Spain, where the French team has won three silver medals.[5] The same year, Delestre managed to qualify for the World Cup Final in Leipzig, Germany, where he ranked sixteenth with Couletto.[6] At the end of 2011, Delestre manages to be in the Top Ten of the FEI Rolex Ranking List, allowing him to participate in the Final Top Ten IJRC of Paris.[7] For that race, he finished eighth on Napoli du Ry.[8] Delestre participated in two World Cup finals, where he got tenth in Stuttgart[9] and fourth in Zurich.[10] However, he failed to qualify for the finals in Hertogensbosch, Netherlands.

Delestre qualified for the 2012 London Olympics on Napoli du Ry, where his coach was Henk Nooren.[4] He finished nineteenth in the individual jumping finals[4] and was part of the French team for team jumping, which came in twelfth.[11]

Delestre is perhaps best known for his prowess in the Mediterranean Games, where he has won two gold medals and one silver, both as part of a team and individually.[2]
