Australian swimmer Ariarne Titmus took home the gold in the 400-meter freestyle event at the Olympics on Monday. Katie Ledecky of Team USA took silver and China’s Li Bingjie won the bronze.

“He means everything to me,” Titmus said of her coach after the event, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. She said she saw him crying as she put on the medal.
