He Zi, 25, likely had all her childhood dreams come true in a single moment! The Chinese Olympic Diver was proudly accepting her silver medal for the women’s 3-meter springboard event on Aug. 14, when her boyfriend decided to pop the question as fans ferociously cheered on. Qin Kia, 30, bravely kneeled down at the podium, pulling out a bright red box with a stunning sparkler inside.

This has got to be such an exciting time for the couple! Just last week, Qin also took home the bronze medal in the men’s 3-meter synchronized springboard event. And now, he’s leaving with a fiance too! He gushed to reporters about Qin’s shocking proposal, “We’ve been dating for over six years. I didn’t know he would propose today, and I didn’t expect myself to marry myself out so early,” according to Reuters. AWE!
Qin’s wife-to-be also said the moment was somewhat of a blur to her, but she did note how he made sweet promises to her. She explained that what touched her the most is when Qin said “he was willing to be bullied” by her forever. LOL! Happy wife, happy life.
Qin and He are actually the second pair to get engaged at the big games! Brazilian rugby player Isadora Cerullo’s girlfriend, Marjorie Enya, proposed to her on the field on Aug. 8. They appeared blissfully in love, sharing a sweet kiss after announcing their upcoming union. Looks like we’ll have a few Olympians walking down the isle soon — Congrats!
