Emotions are definitely expressed differently depending on what kind of person you are. Some people like to keep it to themselves while others choose to express it through various means such as using their bodies.
We’re sure you’ve seen this little clip that has gone viral of the Australian swimming team’s coach who was so overjoyed at his team’s victory that he ran around, shook his fists, ripped his mask out and started hip thrusting the air. The official who was next to him appeared to be frightened and panicked at his aggressively excited reaction. You can watch it below.
Why was he so overjoyed?
The coach, Dean Boxall who is born in South Africa is coaching six of the Australian athletes for the swimming event. The amusing reaction happened when Ariarne Titmus, one of the athletes under him, successfully touched the wall about 0.67 of a second before five-time USA Olympic gold medalist, Katie Ledecky in the 400m freestyle.
According to The Guardian, Ariarne has said that it’s just the way he is,
“That’s just the way Dean is. He’s very passionate about what he does – he really becomes quite animated.”
Speaking on it, the coach told Channel 7 that his reaction “just came out” after a long build-up, lots of pressure, and excitement.

The IOC noticed it
In his celebration, Dean Boxall removed his mask which prompted IOC to issue a “reminder”, according to ABC.
“We ask everyone – all stakeholder groups present in Tokyo – to continue to follow the playbooks, which provide the clearest possible guidelines on how to minimise the risk of exposure to Covid-19.”
“We completely understand that athletes want to celebrate their achievements and special moments at the pinnacle of their sporting career.”
“In order to ensure safe and secure Games for all participants and the Japanese people, it is essential that everyone plays by the rules.”
