Torah’s never complete at a contest without her big brother and coach Benny, who’s about as permanently stoked as she is. He’s also as outspoken as his sis, declaring ‘this pipe is fackin’ shiiit’ to the assembled press, much to their surprise.

His coaching technique is probably one of the reasons why Torah is so relaxed; when our man in Sochi asked if he thought she deserved the pipe gold he simply said:

I don’t really care to be honest, I’m just happy for her.

Amazing! If only every coach was relaxed as that. We can’t imagine that coming out of Bud Keane’s mouth…
