It was a super cool surprise at the ongoing Rio Olympics when spectators saw a Chinese athlete propose to his girlfriend on the medal platform.
He Zi, a female Chinese athlete received the shock of her life while receiving a medal at the Olympics.
Her boyfriend and teammate Qin Kai rushed up with a diamond ring during the medal ceremony of the women’s three-meter springboard event to propose to her.
This is marking the second marriage proposal of the ongoing Rio Olympics.
Qin, who won a bronze medal in his own synchronized diving event last week, climbed up to the stage after Zi received her silver medal.
Getting down on one knee while holding a red box with the ring and a glass-encased rose, Qin proposed.
Her boyfriend of six years who is also an athlete and won gold, Qin Kai rushed up with a diamond ring during the medal ceremony and asked her to marry him.
Chinese Athlete Propose To Girlfriend On Stage
An obviously confused He took a while to go from shock to smiles.
She freely admitted that the proposal came to her as a big shock:
“I didn’t know he would propose today and I didn’t expect myself to marry myself out so early
“I saw him during the afternoon and he seemed to be memorising something, so I asked him ‘what are you doing?’ and he said he was singing.
“I’ve forgotten most of what he’s said (during the proposal), but it’s largely what you can expect like promises, but what touched me the most is that he said he was willing to be bullied by me for life.”
This is the second engagement at the ongoing Olympics. Last week, Isadora Cerullo’s girlfriend proposed to her after a rugby match.
