Commonwealth Games 2018: Is shooter Daniel Repacholi’s interview the most Aussie interview ever?

Daniel Repacholi celebrates winning gold with his family.While most Commonwealth Games athletes have been painstakingly watching their diet and fitness before their competitions this week, the Australian shooter dubbed “the mountain” is doing things a little differently.

By differently, we mean smashing down four chicken parmigianas and relying on a pair of unwashed socks to push him through to medal territory – and it worked.

Australians warmed to bearded shooter Daniel Repacholi after he shot his way to a gold medal on the Gold Coast last night, holding back tears on the podium while being cheered by his young family.

But, it was his post-medal chat with Channel 7 which has been been dubbed the most Australian interview ever.

When questioned on his pre-competition ritual, the stocky Victorian showed it’s not all protein powder and gym sessions.

“I’ve had about four parmas in five days as well as a couple of pizzas so the diet of a shooter isn’t too bad,” he told Mel McLaughlin.
