Chinese Diver Proposes To Fellow Olympian At Medal Ceremony

The 2016 Rio Olympics are full of medals, new world records and apparently, proposals. 

Just after receiving her silver medal in women's 3-meter springboard diving, He Zi got a surprise. Boyfriend and fellow Chinese Olympic diver Qin Kai proposed poolside, and she said yes.

Zi told reporters the couple has been together for six years. "He 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," she said.

Kai will return home to China with more than a new fiancee. He too won an Olympic medal — the bronze in men's synchronized 3-meter springboard diving.
