Kjaerbye早前亦因為身體問題的關係已經缺陣較早舉行的ESL One:Road to Rio 歐洲賽區賽事，隨後North找來了教練Jumpy臨時出戰並成功打入淘汰賽階段。根據North的官方聲明提到，Kjaerbye因為最近幾個月時間經歷著腹痛、呼吸困難及胸部絞痛等問題困擾，所以希望藉此進行休息。
目前為AGF效力的Kristou，這名18歲選手平均rating為0.98，而他在丹麥本土賽事Elgiganten Ligaen中，則以1.47 K/D領先並協助AGF於11場比賽中勝出其中9場比賽。
「We have been collecting and tracking data on a number of young talents in the Scandinavian region as part of our expanded scouting directive in 2020. When it became apparent that we would need a short term substitute due to Kjaerbye’s unfortunate situation, we wanted to take the opportunity to look at the future and use a young and developing talent.
「Among the many players that were at the top of our metrics, further analysis from our coaching team lead to Kristou standing out as a player that had the qualities that we desired for the role we were looking to fill. We are looking forward to seeing him play during our run in Dreamhack Masters.」 – Graham Pitt, Head of Esports Operations
