Australian Swimming Coach’s Reaction To Winning Gold Is Now A Viral Meme

Australian swimmer Ariarne Titmus recently achieved the incredible feat of winning the gold medal at her very first Olympics after beating out American swimmer Katie Ledecky in the women’s 400m freestyle final. But surprisingly, what caught the internet’s attention more than Titmus’ victory, was her coach’s reaction to her winning.

The hilarious moment was caught on camera where Titmus’ coach, Dean Boxall can be seen cheering, pumping his fist in the air, and going absolutely berserk. At one point, Boxall even ripped off his face mask (which we do not recommend) and strode past the steel barriers to celebrate by air-humping the glass balcony.

Eventually, the 43-year-old coach had to be ushered back to his designated area due to social distancing rules. The legendary scene has since gone viral on social media, where some netizens commented that Boxall was simply celebrating in an Australian manner.

Speaking on his own style of celebration, Boxall said “I think I went outside of my body. I just lost it,” adding that “But I can’t help it. [I] believe in my athletes. It’s very simple, when the athletes leave the pool deck … they begin the recovery process and they switch off. I go home and try to find a way for them to get better. I don’t turn it off. That’s probably why I let it out.”
