Right after stepping down from the podium with her new silver medal for the Women’s 3m Springboard at the Rio Olympic Games, 25-year-old China’s He Zi gets emotional when proposed to by her boyfriend and now fiance, 30-year-old Chinese diver, Qin Kai:
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.
