Women's Olympic rugby player Isadora Cerullo of Brazil ended yesterday's game in tears. And not because of her team's performance (they placed ninth), but because her girlfriend proposed to her on the field in Rio. Spoiler: she said si.
Cerullo’s long-term girlfriend, Majorie Enya, a manager at the Deodoro Stadium, delivered an emotional speech on the field Monday night before proposing, as fellow team members and onlookers cheered, BBC reported.
“As soon as I knew she was in the squad, I thought I have to make this special,” said Enya. “I know rugby people are amazing and they would embrace it.”
Sorry to all the players who got gold medals, but this couple were yesterday's winners.
