On August 15 (Beijing Time), Chinese swimmer Tingmao Shi won the Women’s 3-meter Springboard Competition with a score of 406.05 points, gaining for Chinese team the eighth champions in this event. Chinese swimmer Zi He picked a silver medal in her second participation to the Olympic Games.
After the award ceremony, Chinese famous male diver Kai Qin, in love with the silver medalist Zi He for six years, appeared with gifts at the site, in front of the spectator, kneed down with the ring and proposed formally to Zi He.
Kai Qin kept speaking to Zi He. It was a pity that there was no microphone at the scene. Only Zi He heard what he said.
Zi He shed tears and accepted Kai Qin’s proposal, who then put the ring on her hand. The whole spectator and opponents hailed for the pair of lovers with cheers and blessing.
The opponents hugged Zi He one by another and had yet looked at her engagement ring. CCTV’s commentator Mengmeng Zhang and the guest athlete Na Li were choked by sobbing and could not say anything more.
At London Olympic Games of four years ago, when Kai Qin didn’t obtain good scores, Zi He sent him a big hug to warm up his disappointment. Four years later, Kai Qin paid back his girlfriend with a wholehearted wedding proposal.
Zi He told the reporter later in an interview that she hopes Kai Qin can make her happy for life!
