Chinese diver He Zi received both a silver medal for the womenâ€™s 3-m springboard and a marriage proposal at the Rio Olympics on Sunday.
Boyfriend Qin Kai, 30, who had won bronze in the menâ€™s 3-m synchronized springboard last week, seized the moment at the podium ceremony, bent down on one knee and offered up an engagement ring, according to Reuters.
â€œI didnâ€™t know he would propose today,â€ said 25-year-old He, who tearfully accepted the proposal.
The sporting couple have been dating for the past six years.
â€œHe said a lot of things there at the podium. He made a lot of promises, but the thing that has touched me the most is that I think this is the guy I can trust for the rest of my life,â€ He said
This is the second proposal seen so far at the Rio Games. Brazilian womenâ€™s rugby player Isadora Cerullo said yes to girlfriend Marjorie Enya after the rugby sevens final between New Zealand and Australia.
