This Video Of Ariarne Titmus’ Family Watching Her Final Gold Medal Lap Is Absolutely Brilliant

Ariarne Titmus has cemented her legacy as one of the Australia's greatest ever swimmers, joining an elite group of Aussies to win gold in both the 200m and 400m events at an Olympic Games.

She has well and truly taken Tokyo by storm.

The entire nation was absolutely buzzing for her when she successfully fended off reigning world champion and record holder Katie Ledecky to storm home and clinch gold in the women's 400m freestyle title.

But it seems no one was more proud of Titmus than her parents.

And in a video posted online by Australian broadcaster Channel 7, you can see the rollercoaster of emotions Steve and Robyn went through while watching their daughter's final charge to glory.

In the clip, you can Titmus begins her final lap just a matter of split seconds behind Ledecky.

Neck and neck with just 50m to go, Titmus turned on the afterburners and stormed home to steal a historic come-from-behind victory right from under Ledecky's nose.

Over in Tokyo, Titmus' coach Dean Boxall produced an iconic reaction, turning into a viral overnight internet sensation for his complete and utter poolsid meltdown.

But back home in Australia, it was Titmus' own family who produced arguably the best celebration of all.

Watching the race alongside swimming great Dawn Fraser, Titmus' mother and father experienced every emotion under the sun as they witnessed their daughter clinch Olympic gold.

From nervousness in the beginning to ecstasy at the very end, Steve and Robyn went through it all - and you could see the sheer relief plastered all over their faces when Titmus finally touched the pool wall.
