Zoi Sadowski-Synnott wrote history at Beijing 2022 when she won New Zealand’s first gold medal in the women’s sloppy event. With this, she became the first athlete of her country to cross the podium at the Winter Olympics.
Reacting to her iconic achievement, Sadowski-Synnott’s father praised in a media interview, filled with the letter f. A reporter talked to her father, Sean Synnott, about how proud he was, to which he replied: “Honestly, I’m quite happy for the king.”
“She’s gone crazy,” he added, referring to his daughter’s performance at the Olympics.
Here’s a viral video of Sean’s interview:
“The last 24 hours have been a whirlwind”
Sadowski-Synnott, who turns 21 next month, joked that his father’s interview was motivated by a bit of courage. However, she said you couldn’t blame him much as it was Waitangi Day in New Zealand and his daughter had just won an Olympic gold medal!
“Yeah, I really thought he was drinking too much at the time, but you can’t blame him, it was Waitangi Day in New Zealand (a national holiday) and his daughter had just arrived. The Olympics should be..!‘ Sadowski-Synnott told Reuters with a laugh.
“The last 24 hours have been a whirlwind, it’s tempting to stand here with gold around your neck.”
Zoi’s trainer, Sean Thomson, also reacted hilariously to the incident, saying that her “favorite kiwi”, a popular drink being served throughout Beijing, moved her father.
“He’s amazing, it’s great to see his emotions erupt in that clip,” Thomson said.
“We love it and we love all the support from back home with friends and family. It’s really special with what Zoi has done here, and to see people react the way they did is just something else. ”
