Chinese Diver Gets Silver Medal AND Marriage Proposal at the Podium (Pics)
Olympic diver He Zi managed to get a silver medal in last night’s finals for the women’s 3M springboard, but what really got people talking was her boyfriend’s follow-up to that performance.
Shortly after taking the podium, she was popped the question in adorable (and public) fashion by her BF, making the day incredibly memorable for her for a second, more personal reason.
And it’s likely that even the Olympic audience isn’t going to forget this one anytime soon.
Here’s the Tweet with the image:

Her boyfriend is fellow Chinese diver Qin Kai, and, in case you were wondering how it turned out…she said yes.
Otherwise this would have been a VERY different story.
