Rio Olympics 2016 has been a wind of emotions for us Indians as we proudly watched girl power take over and preserve the pride of our nation.
While on one side, the entire nation came together to watch not cricket, but P.V. Sindhu battle for a gold medal in Badminton, on the other side, love managed to squeeze its way amidst all the competitive spirit.
We’re talking about the heart-warming marriage proposals that triumphed over the raw emotions of winning medals. These couples took advantage of the perfect stage that gave worldwide coverage to their winning marriage proposals at Rio Olympics 2016. Take a look!
The Cute Marriage Proposal
Britain’s Charlotte Dujardin, first yelled “Yes” with joy on winning her third gold medal for the individual dressage.

He gave her a sweet surprise wearing a #1 foam finger (indicating that she is indeed his #1) and a t-shirt with a message: Can we get married now?
Looks like he has waited too long for this one and finally, this cute couple is happily engaged, ready to tie the knot next year.
