Chinese diver He Zi has been doing pretty great in the Rio Olympics. She took home a Silver medal in the 3-meter springboard, and as if that wasn’t exciting enough, she then got the surprise of a lifetime!

He Zi’s boyfriend, fellow Olympic diver Qin Kai, proposed to her on the podium right after she won her medal.

Is that not the most romantic thing you’ve ever heard?! Oh yeah, and he also gave his unsuspecting fiancé a red rose encased in a glass. 

She remained composed when giving her answer, but it was a resounding…

Of course, all of this was captured on video.

Apparently the lovebirds have been dating for six years, but Zi told reporters that she wasn’t expecting a proposal that day. Which makes sense, since she was probably focused on the whole Olympic competition thing…

“He (Qin) said a lot of things there at the podium. He made a lot of promises, but the thing that has touched me the most is that I think this is the guy I can trust for the rest of my life.”

Huge congratulations to the happy couple!

Hey is it just us, or is there something in the air in Rio? Because last week, Rugby player Isadora Cerullo’s girlfriend Marjorie Enya proposed to her on the field!

Sooooooo, who’s going to be NEXT?!
