Japanese wrestler Risako Kawai took Olympic gold in women's 62kg freestyle wrestling Thursday, beating Maria Mamashuk of Belarus. She dominated, winning 6-0 when time ran out (that's good if you have no idea how wrestling works). The 21-year-old won gold in her Olympic debut and she celebrated by doing a little of what got her there in the first place.
As her coach ran out to the mat for a celebratory hug, she lifted him into the air and slammed him to the mat like a rag doll. When he got up, she did it again. He finally got that hug on the third attempt, with a big smile on his face.
Her gold was significant for the Japanese wrestling team after the defeat of 13-time world champion Saori Yoshida in the women's 53kg freestyle wrestling competition. A gold for Yoshida would have been only the second time a female athlete in any sport won gold in four successive Olympics.
