The Belgian foursome of Koen Vereecke (Kasanova de la Pomme), Gregory Wathelet (Iron Man van de Padenborre), Gilles Thomas (Calleryama) and Jerome Guery (Quel Homme de Hus) claimed the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup 2022 title and the single qualification spot on offer for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain when completing on a zero scoreline.

Switzerland was the only other country chasing down that Olympic qualification but they had to settle for third place behind France at end of the day when sharing a four-fault tally but with a slower time. The Netherlands lined up in fourth with eight faults while Great Britain, Spain and Germany all picked up 16 faults to take the next three placings. Team Ireland finished last of the eight competing nations on a final tally of 20.
