Kristof was mostly known for his performance on the high bar, but he actually was an all-arounder first. He made his debut in the Seniors ranks in 2010 at the European Championships in Birmingham where he placed 13th with the team, a few weeks after he won a silver medal at the Belgian Championships.
He then became National Champion in 2012 and won yet another medal, the bronze, in 2014 (behind Thomas Neuteleers and Jimmy Verbaeys). He got his best results on the horizontal bar, the highlight being a very beautiful 5th place at the 2014 European Championships in Sofia, just 0.042 points from the bronze medal.

Kristof competed at the 2014 World Championships where he helped the team placed 19th, and at the 2015 European Championships in Montpellier. He missed half of the 2016 season due to a back injury and was part of the selection process for the Olympic Games. 

His last competition were the European Championships in Cluj last Spring, where he competed on the high bar. Thank you for everything that you've done for the sport, Kristof! Good luck for what comes next!
