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.


Can't imagine Elise coming up to him and challenging him to fight
And then he "accidently" hit her unconscious which results in Elise having a concussion. And even though it was an "accident" he still felt the need to flee and leave the country

Also witnesses said they were just cheering for Dani's winners and weren't disrespecful towards Karen at all. I mean it's just a 1st round of a 25k. Not like there was a whole bunch of Dutch supporters cheering.
