It was one of those ‘Where you when’ moments when Ariarne Titmus made history winning Gold in the 400m Freestyle. The moment has captured the attention of the world as Ariarne not only made history, but her coach Dean Boxall had one of the BEST reactions to her win.

So Erin & Soda get on the phone with Steve Titmus, Ariarne’s dad to discuss that viral moment and see what it took to get Ariarne to the games.

Steve said he has finally spoken to Ariarne, saying “I’m in awe of how composed she was” but she’s still focused as she’s got more races to come.

Their family made a huge sacrifice to get Ariarne to where she is today.
