With under a minute remaning in the gold-medal game for men’s basketball in the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Chris Paul hit a layup to put Team USA up 104-93 against Spain.
Duke basketball head coach Mike Krzyzewski, who coaches the American national team and led them to a second Olympic gold in as many tries as head coach, was quite happy with the shot that sealed the victory for Team USA.
So happy, in fact, that he excitedly jumped for joy three times on the sidelines, pumping his fists. And, one humorous YouTube video, uploaded by uniqueone006, captures that exuberance.
Check it out:
The voice in the video says, “Watch Coach K–like a schoolgirl. This dude’s lost it.”
In his press conference at Raleigh/Durham International Airport on Monday, returning to the United States, Krzyzewski alluded to his excitement on the sidelines when a reporter asked him if he were more excited or relieved to have won because of the high expectations for Team USA.
“It’s more excitement, in the last couple minutes, I don’t think my reactions on the sidelines were out of relief. It was like, ‘Whoa, this is unbelievable,’” Krzyzewski said.
