Olympic race walker Tom Bosworth is having the time of his life in Rio de Janeiro! The British Olympian pulled off a sweet beach proposal for his boyfriend, Harry Dineley, on August 15, and it’s one of the most romantic things we’ve ever seen! Click through to see the pics!
Attending the Rio 2016 Olympic games was already a magnificent honor for Harry Dineley, who was there to support his boyfriend Tom Bosworth. But Tom, who was there to compete for Britain in the Men’s 20km race walk on August 12, had an ace up his sleeve to make Harry feel special after his event was over!
Tom proposed to Harry on the beach at the scenic Praia de Copacabana beach on August 15, and the whole thing was thankfully caught on camera. Tom posted a romantic pic of the proposal to Twitter, which showed him down on one knee, popping the question to his beaming boyfriend. He captioned the photo “He said YES!!”
This is so cute! Harry, who works in food service, according to LinkedIn, retweeted the pic, and posted a closeup of his engagement ring. It’s a simple, silver band inset with a small diamond. It’s classy and unassuming. He captioned the pic, “Ok then @tomBosworth” We love it!
This was Tom’s first Olympics, and after ranking 37th worldwide in the relatively unknown sport of race walking, he came in 6th place! Well done! He was clearly having the time of his life, too, posting tons of pics of himself taking in the sights with Harry and his family, and congratulating all his competitors on their races. What a nice guy!
Shockingly, Tom and Harry’s engagement is the fourth to happen during the Rio Olympics! Charlotte Dujardin, who won gold for Team Great Britain in dressage on August 15, saw her boyfriend holding up a sign saying “can we get married now?” in the stands after her win. “He already knows it’s yes. He’s already asked me, he’s just looking for me to say ‘yes’ more,” she told Daily Mail. So funny!
Chinese diver He Zi‘s boyfriend, fellow diver Qin Kai, proposed to her while she was still on the podium after winning the silver medal for 3-meter springboard. How sweet! Another happy moment occurred when Olympic volunteer Marjorie Enya proposed to her Olympic rugby player girlfriend Isadora Cerullo while she was on the pitch! Romance is really in the air in Rio!
