The victory sent her coach to a different level of being.

Just an unbelievable display of five years' worth of coaching and preparation all leaving his body at once.

Titmus "admires" Ledecky, so defeating someone who she looks up to, and someone who holds both the Olympic and world record for the women's 400m freestyle, is an incredible accomplishment.

The Australian finished with a time of 3:56.69, setting a new Oceanian record, while Ledecky completed the race in 3:57.36. China's Bingjie Li claimed bronze with a time of 4:01.08.

At just 20 years old, Titmus has a bright future in the sport, which means her coach should have lots of opportunities to celebrate more victories.
