A Japanese wrestler celebrated winning the gold in the freestyle -63 kg category by wrestling her coach to the ground twice and then walking around with him on her shoulders.

Risako Kawai gave Japan their fourth women’s wrestling gold of the Rio Games on Thursday with a victory over Mariya Mamashuk of Belarus in the championship match of the freestyle 63 kg category.

The 21-year-old, at her first Olympic, had the energy to spare after defeating the Belarusian 3-0 and slammed team leader Kazuhito Sakeo to the mat twice.

“Before the final, the coach said he wanted me to lift him on his shoulders,” Kawai told Japanese media. “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.”

Sakae, 56 is a retired wrestler who won several  medals in the 62 kg category at Asian Games  at the Asian Games and the World level between 1983 and 1989.

Risako Kawai later carried Sakae throughout out the mat  and waved her hands to the stands.

Japan currently have 12 Gold medals in Rio Olympic  and 36 altogether . Japan currently at the  sixth position  behind USA, Great Britain, China, Germany, and Russia.
