Chinese diver He Zi’s silver medal may just be one of the memorable things she would take away from the Rio Olympics. But the 25 year old Chinese diver sure has one more memorable incident to look back to. Minutes after she received her Silver medal in women's 3 metre springboard event category, her 30-year old teammate and boyfriend Qin Kai sprang up on the stage to go down on one knee and propose her marriage with a ring in one hand and a rose in glass case in the other.

A visibly shocked He, cried tears of joy and hugged her boyfriend as the other two winners cheered them on along with those present at the stadium. Qin, in fact, had won a bronze a bronze medal in his own synchronized diving event last week.

"I didn't know he would propose today and I didn't expect myself to marry myself out so early," said He, who tearfully accepted the proposal with a big hug.

"I saw him during the afternoon and he seemed to be memorizing something, so I asked him 'what are you doing?' and he said he was singing," she told reporters.

"I've forgotten most of what he's said (during the proposal), but it's largely what you can expect like promises, but what touched me the most is that he said he was willing to be bullied by me for life," she said.

The 25-year-old has been dating the 30-year-old Qin for the past six years, she added.

Shi Tingmao, speaking to reporters after her gold medal win in the same event, said she had knew about the proposal before the event, which Qin watched from the sidelines with the Chinese team.

"I'm really happy for them, because these years, be it career or relationships-wise, they have had to face a lot of pressure," she said.

The engagement is the second of the Games, after Brazilian women's rugby player Isadora Cerullo accepted a marriage proposal from her girlfriend at the medals ceremony for the first Olympic rugby sevens competition last week.
