She hits a horse and gets kicked out of the Games

A German coach has been kicked out of the Olympics for punching a horse in the modern pentathlon event.

While leading the modern pentathlon at the Tokyo Olympics, Annika Schleu lost everything in the equestrian event, where she encountered a “refusal” from the horse she had been awarded during the draw.

In tears, as she watched her dream of a gold medal fly away, the German tried everything with her mount, hitting her with her whip and kicking her (which earned her criticism for social networks, especially from animal rights activists).

However, it was Mannschaft coach Kim Raisner who was sanctioned for punching the horse Saint-Boy (23 seconds in the video below). A gesture of frustration that was certainly not necessary, which earned him to be excluded from the Olympics. In the video, she is also heard advising Annika Schleu to hit the horse.

“The UIPM Executive Board (EC) gave Germany coach Kim Raisner a black card, disqualifying it from the rest of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, The Modern Pentathlon International Federation explained in a statement.The EC reviewed video footage showing Ms Raisner appearing to hit the horse Saint Boy, ridden by Annika Schleu (GER), with her fist during the equestrian discipline of the Women’s Modern Pentathlon competition. His actions were found to violate the UIPM competition rules, which are applied to all recognized modern pentathlon competitions, including the Olympic Games. “
