The Japanese Olympics worker who tried to contain the wild celebrations of Australia's swimming coach has vowed to be ready for him next time.
Ariarne Titmus stormed home to win gold in the 400m freestyle over America's greatest ever female swimmer Katie Ledecky on Monday, with her coach Dean Boxall's crazy celebrations being broadcast across the globe.
Boxall ripped his face mask off and started running up and down the stands before screaming and gyrating as a staff member panicked in the background.
The young woman spoke to Channel 7 about the moment, saying she was unaware she's now famous but promised to be ready for Boxall if he tries to break out of his area again.
'Next time I'll make sure I'm going to hold him,' the woman said as she flexed her muscles.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

Boxall's antics went viral around the world after he stalked the stands as Titmus came home for her gold before bursting through a barrier, throwing his mask and screaming to the heavens.
He became an immediate hero in Australia and many countries around the world, but his euphoric behaviour wasn't enjoyed by everyone, with a number of sour Americans taking to social media to label Boxall 'vulgar and frankly offensive'.
'What the Australia coach did isn't funny or cute. It bigfoots a woman athlete winning a gold medal and centers the attention on him,' an American author named Laura Chapin tweeted.

Boxall refused to apologise for the celebration, saying his only regret was breaking Japan's strict Olympic Covid protocols by ripping off his mask.
'I lost it. I think I went outside my body. I just lost it. That's a moment of being with this girl for five years and having a dream together,' Boxall said.
'The Americans might not like it, I don't know. But I bleed with my athletes.'
Boxall, who Titmus and her family relocated from Tasmania to Queensland for him to be the prodigy's coach, was caught on cameras of broadcasts around the world stalking the pool as the 20-year-old approached the wall for her first gold medal.
'I mean he is going crazy. Oh my goodness, haha! He's like putting on a show like Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones or something,' the commentator said as he burst through barriers and threw his mask.

Boxall then grabbed onto a glass barrier and shook it vociferously as he gyrated into the railing.
He then punched the air and screamed at the pool as a startled Japanese Olympic worker nervously tried to encourage him back into his section.
The coach was later overcome with emotion and wiped away tears while Titmus took to the podium to accept her gold medal.

'There's no way he's not building unsafe relationships. With all we know about athlete mental health, especially Olympic athletes, it's extra disgusting,' she added.
Titmus and his other swimmers have repeatedly praised Boxall's energy and personality, as evident by Titmus' family uprooting themselves from Tasmania so he could coach their daughter.
'He means everything to me,' Titmus said of
