(ABC News)–The Chinese silver medalist in the women’s 3-meter springboard might be a new record-holder, in love.
He Zi, 25, of China won second place in the diving competition on Sunday. But just after stepping down from the podium with her new silver medal, she also received gold — a marriage proposal complete with engagement ring from her boyfriend, who is also a diver for the Chinese team, according to the Associated Press.
Qin Kai, 30, kneeled and presented the ring to He, before placing it on her finger and asking her to marry him, the AP reported. With her hand over her mouth, He nodded her head to say, “Yes.”
Qin also presented He with a red rose in a glass box, the AP said, while the crowd cheered.
“He said a lot of things,” He said, describing Qin’s speech to the AP. “He made a lot of promises, but the most important thing is this is the guy I can trust for the rest of my life.”
The pair was caught on camera hugging after the proposal.
