I won't ever forget this moment here in the pool. My embrace in full support of Kyle, and Kyle's embrace in full support of me. Although there were 15,000 people watching and another several hundred million watching on TV, this moment was just between the two of us. Complete respect: this is what sport is all about. Thank you. #OurTeam @dolphinsaus @ausolympicteam
