China’s Qin Kai, two-time Olympic champion in diving, proposed to his girlfriend He Zi right at the awards ceremony of the Summer Olympics in Rio. The photos were uploaded at the official Twitter account of Rio Olympics 2016.
As the athlete completed his part in his event, he handed her the ring and proposed to her. He Zi said ‘yes’, and the fiancées gave an emotional hug to each other – in presence of other athletes, the jury and the supporters.
He Zi is another Olympic champion in diving; on that day, she won silver in her event. The gold went to her compatriot Shi Tingmao.
