Qin Kai, himself a diver and also on the Chinese national team, surprised He in front of a global TV audience by coming up to the podium after the medal ceremony, dropping down on one knee, and popping THE question!
As you can see (in the pic, above), the moment was must-see TV for both the international audience, and the shocked fans in the stadium!
He said of the moment Qin came up and asked for her hand in marriage (below):
"This morning, I walked into a room and I found him reciting something. I asked him what he was doing and he said he was singing. I just didn't know that he was practicing proposing. We've been dating for six years, but I didn't expect him to propose today. He said a lot of things, made a lot of promises, but I think the thing that touched me the most is I think this is the guy I can trust for the rest of my life."
