B&T’s Tokyo Olympics Wrap: Your Daily Dose of Hysterics, Romance & Foul Language

While the Tokyo Olympics has been broadcasting some incredible sporting moments, it has also managed to capture something even better – humans being a little bit mad.

To kick off the wrap, let’s start with some actual sporting news,  British diver Tom Daly won gold, but never mind the actual diving, if you want to treat yourself to some pure joy, there is nothing sweeter than watching his husband, filmmaker Dustin Lance Black, react.

Warning – This may make your partner seem unsupportive in comparison, even if you haven’t won gold.

Loved this moment so much! Congrats @tomdaley #olympics #fyp #fypage #QuickBooksVictoryPose

While Daly’s husband’s support was beautiful to watch, he may have been outdone by Australian coach, Dean Boxall.

Boxall lost his mind, in the best way possible, when his prodigy Ariarne Titmus won gold in the women’s 400m freestyle final.

Boxall’s raw reaction has since been turned into a meme.

A post shared by Shameless Podcast (@shamelesspodcast)

Actor and presenter Joe Tracini, has gone viral for sharing his relatable commentary on gymnasts Max Whitlock’s bar routine.

Instead of using correct lingo, Tracini has come up with his own, which funnily enough is easier to understand.

A standout line is, “Anus down, lips to the floor, shout at your Nan.” Tanslation – Whitlock stuck the landing.

In some more intense news,  German Olympian Martyna Trajdos made headlines when her coach was spotted shaking her, before slapping her in the face.

However, the slap didn’t seem to help the judoka – she ultimately lost.

Naturally, people were a little bit concerned by this um …”coaching’: technique but Trajdos took to Instagram to defend her coach’s action.

Trajdos called it a “ritual”. Arguably, this didn’t make anyone feel better about it.

Moving right along,  if you want a reminder that romance is not dead, no need to look at Jennifer Lopez’s Instagram.

A local Kiwi girl shot her shot with Hayden Wilde after he won bronze in the men’s individual triathlon.

When asked by a reporter if she had anything to say to Wilde, she responded with, “I regret breaking up with you.”

Heartbreakingly, Wilde commented later that he couldn’t wait to ring his girlfriend, and he wasn’t referring to his ex-Kiwi love. (He is dating some woman that resides in Spain.)

Okay, so maybe romance IS dead, but at least we still have Jen and Ben.

In fabulous Australian news, swimmer Kaylee Mckeown won gold in the 100m backstroke race, and she celebrated in the way all Australians should – by throwing an shakas in the air and dropping the f-bomb.

In her post-victory interview, Channel Seven reporter, Nathan Templeton, said:  “Your mum, Sharon and your big sister Taylor. It’s been a difficult time for your family. What would you like to say?” 

Mckeown said: “Fuck yeah!” and then when the realisation dawned on her that she’d just sworn, “Oh, shit!”

You can say a lot of things about the Olympics but you can’t say it isn’t entertaining.
