Re: Elise Tamaela knocked out and put on a drip by opponent's father
Things are getting ridiculous now. Mihai Barbat was just on the news in Denmark telling his side of the story:
According to Mihai Barbat, he called the Dutch spectators "bad chickens" because of them cheering Karen's mistakes which he viewed as disrespectful. They misconstrued this as a racist slur ("black chick"). Then Tamaela went up to him, yelling "Do you want to fight?" and hit him. As a reflex, he put up his hands to protect his face and must have accidentally hit her with his elbow, knocking her out in the process.
To me, it sounds like bullshit, but there you have it. Discuss.
