VIDEO: Australia swim coach goes bananas after Ariarne Titmus beats Katie Ledecky for Olympics gold
As always, the Olympics never fail to produce moments of greatness and, well, pure entertainment. That was the case during the 400-meter freestyle swimming event in the Tokyo Olympics.
After Australian swimmer Ariarne Titmus narrowly beat American prodigy Katie Ledecky for the gold medal in the event, her coach Dean Boxall was all fired up and couldn’t hold back his excitement over the epic victory. It was a close fight between Titmus and Ledecky, so we can’t really blame the coach for his crazy reaction.
For what it’s worth, it’s easier to show the video than describe how the swim coach went bananas in the Olympics:

Who else had remembered the Ultimate Warrior from that scene? The hair certainly helped!
It’s hard not to feel for the Olympics staff trying to hold back the coach, though. There’s nothing she could have done anyway.

However, let’s give it to Dean Boxall. Every athlete needs a coach like that on their side. Also, it’s not as if it is an overreaction. For those who doesn’t know, Katie Ledecky’s defeat against Ariarne Titmus was the first loss she ever experienced in an individual event in the Olympics.
Coach Dean Boxall can surely celebrate all he wants!
