The Japanese wrestler, 21, won the gold medal in the womens 63-kg freestyle on Thursday, and celebrated in style by slamming down her coach, Kazuhito Sakae.

Kawai later credited her coachs support for earning Japans fourth gold medal in womens wrestling in the Rio Games. When youve just won an Olympic gold in wrestling, this is how to thank your coach.

My coach told me to keep a cool head and be daring, and I always had it in my mind to attack, Kawai told The Japan Times of Sakae, a former Olympian who competed in the 1988 Games.
Kawai also told reporters the slam was pre-planned and pre-approved by her 53-year-old coach.
Before the final, the coach said he wanted me to lift him on his shoulders, the first-time Olympian said. The three wrestlers the previous day all won gold so they got to do that, and I said I wanted to be first to slam him and he let me do it.
