Because that is love.

What do you do after winning an NCAA national championship in wrestling? Body slam your coach, apparently.

Why not?! #ncaawrestling

This is Iowa’s Cory Clark after winning the national championship in the 133-pound class.

What makes it even funnier is that the body slam came at the coach’s request. In the .gif below, you can see assistant coach Terry Brands saying, “Throw me. Throw me.”

Here are some other hilarious pics of the coach getting tossed around on the mat.

INTENSE doesn’t begin to describe it. #NCAAWrestling

I don’t care. I’m sharing it again (This is wider). I’ve heard of wrestlers jumping in coaches’ arms and vice versa. This is cray-cray, yo!

But hey, this is an awesome accomplishment, and they should be allowed to celebrate however the hell they want. Just don’t seriously injure yourselves doing it, please!
