Rugby Player Says Yes to Sweet Proposal During Rio Olympics

A rugby sevens player was proposed to by her girlfriend following the finals at the Rio de Janeiro games, making her the first athlete to receive a marriage proposal at the Brazil Olympics. How amazing is that?

Isadora Cerullo, 25, was part of the Brazil squad that missed out on reaching the knockout rounds.

After the medal ceremony on Monday had ended, Marjorie Enya, Cerullo's girlfriend and a volunteer at the Games, asked her to marry her.

As you can imagine, Twitter was delighted. Love wins!

Enya gave an emotional speech before the couple embraced to applause, the BBC reported.

The BBC reported that Enya said: "As soon as I knew she was in the squad I thought I have to make this special. I know rugby people are amazing and they would embrace it."

"She is the love of my life," Enya added. "The Olympic Games can look like closure but for me it's starting a new life with someone.

"I wanted to show people that love wins."
