Although the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio are officially over, there were moments from the games that will last a lifetime. For the Japanese Women’s Wrestling Team, it was undoubtedly how they celebrated their amazing victories with their 56-year-old coach, Kazuhito Sakae.
The women’s team from Japan took home a remarkable 4 gold medals and 1 silver medal. The unforgettable celebrations first began when Sara Dosho won gold over Russia’s Natalia Vorobeva in the 69 kg final. She hoisted (hands-free no less!) Sakae on her shoulders as he proudly waved Japan’s flag. Risako Kawai followed suit after her win in the 63 kg final, also hoisting her coach but not before delivering two perfect body slams!
