Shortly after she received a silver medal for her second-place finish in the women’s three-meter springboard final on Sunday, China’s He Zi received an engagement ring from her longtime boyfriend in one of the more adorable moments of the Rio Games.

Chinese diver Qin Kai, who won silver in the men’s three-meter springboard in London, got down on one knee to pop the question in front of the crowd after He and teammate Shi Tingmao took the top two spots in Sunday’s event.

Reports from the Maria Lenk Aquatics Center are that He said yes to what was at least the second marriage proposal after a medal ceremony this week. Brazilian Olympics volunteer Marjorie Enya proposed to her longtime girlfriend Isadora Cerullo, a member of Brazil’s rugby sevens women’s team, on Monday.

Italy’s Tania Cagnotto won bronze in the three-meter springboard, while Duke medical student Abby Johnston, the only American to advance to the final, placed 12th out of 12 divers.
