This Olympic wrestler may have had possibly the best celebration move

She's a HERO...

We will never tire of seeing athletes rejoice in their newfound glory.

The Rio Olympics have been a joy to watch over the last few weeks, with sportspeople from all around the globe competing to get the best result for their country.

We’ve delighted in the exploits of our own O’Donovan brothers but also sympathised with our favourite boxer Michael Conlon.

One athlete who has caught our eye for her own particular success is Japanese wrestler Risako Kawai.

during the Women's Freestyle on Day 13 of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at Carioca Arena 2 on August 18, 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The wrestler won a gold medal in the freestyle 64kg final.

After beating her opponent, Belarus’ Mariya Mamashuk, the Japanese athlete decided to celebrate accordingly.

While running to greet her coach for much-needed celebratory hug, the wrestler tackles him to the ground.

As the poor fella, begins to get up to defend himself, Risako goes in for the kill once again, like a BOSS.

People took to Twitter to voice admiration for the gold medallist wrestler.
