First the silver and then the diamond — Chinese diver He Zi had more than one big moment during the medal ceremony in Rio Sunday.
Just after taking second place in the women's 3-meter springboard, the diver was clearly shocked when her boyfriend and fellow Team China diver Qin Kai approached the podium, dropped to one knee and popped the question!
Gold medal winner Shi Tingmao and bronze holder Tania Cagnotto, who shared the podium with He, looked on and smiled as Qin pulled out a red velvet ring box and proposed to his longtime girlfriend in front of millions of viewers around the world.
