TOKYO — The coach of Germany’s modern pentathlon team was kicked out the Tokyo Olympics on Saturday for, of all things, punching a horse.
Kim Raisner was caught on camera slugging the horse and urging rider Annika Schleu to “really hit” her mount after it balked at jumping during a pivotal moment in Friday’s competition.
At that point Schleu was in the lead — she went from first to 31st and left the arena in tears because the horse, whose name is “Saint Boy,” would not budge.
