Chinese diver He Zi was awarded a silver medal for the women’s 3-meter springboard on Sunday night when her boyfriend Qin Kai suddenly appeared, got down on one knee and proposed to her.
Qin, who’s also a diver from China, had been dating He for six years and earned a bronze medal himself in the men’s 3-meter springboard.
To the delight of Qin and everyone in the stadium, He Zi accepted the proposal and the couple held each other in a warm embraced while the whole stadium started cheering.
“We’ve been dating for six years, but I didn’t expect him to propose today,” He told reporters. “He said a lot of things, made a lot of promises, but I think the thing that touched me the most is I think this is the guy I can trust for the rest of my life.”
Earlier that morning, Qin reportedly almost ruined his surprised. “This morning in his room he was reciting something and I didn’t notice [what it was]. I asked him and he said he was singing,” He said. “I didn’t know he was [practicing] the proposal.”
While everyone is most likely happy for the newly-engaged couple, some netizens questioned whether it was appropriate for Qin to interrupt He’s moment, citing that the proposal downplays the celebration of He’s athlete accomplishment.
Regardless, we’re certainly happy for the couple and wish them well!
