Silver in 3m, gold in love - WSMV News 4

Chinese diver He Zi wins silver in 3m, gold in love with marriage proposal

Posted: Updated:

Diver He Zi didn't get gold in the women's 3-meter springboard diving final on Sunday. But she still walked away with a ring.

Fellow Chinese diver Qin Kai surprised her just after the medal ceremony when he met her poolside and proposed. Qin dropped down to one knee and held up a small red box with a ring. Qin slipped the ring on the silver medal-winning He's finger and handed her a rose contained in a glass case.

With a big smile on her face, He covered her mouth and gave her new fiance a hug. The couple received a big cheer from the crowd as they left the pool.

Love appears to be in the air at the Rio Games. 

Olympic volunteer Marjorie Edna proposed to her girlfriend -- Brazilian rugby player Isadora Cerullo -- on the pitch last week after a game.
