TOKYO (AP) — A German coach at the Tokyo Olympics has been suspended after being filmed hitting an uncooperative horse during the women’s modern pentathlon competition.

TV footage showed Kim Raisner leaning over a fence to strike the horse Saint Boy. The horse had refused to jump the fences in the show jumping round.

That cost German athlete Annika Schleu a chance of winning the gold medal.

Raisner’s suspension only applies for the rest of the Tokyo Olympics. The Games end Sunday.
