Love Is in the Air – level 2
Maybe it's the excitement of the Games or the heat from the sun, but it seems like love is in the air in Rio.
A Chinese diver’s boyfriend proposed to her whilst on the podium. Her boyfriend said that his heart was beating so hard because he did not know what she would say. Thankfully, she said yes.
This comes after a Brazilian rugby sevens player’s girlfriend proposed to her on the pitch after the grand final. Other Olympic love birds include a British 20-kilometre race walker who proposed to his boyfriend on Copacabana Beach and an American triple jumper who proposed to his girlfriend after winning a silver medal in his event.
And this is not just the Olympians – the rest of the city is feeling the love, too. There must be something in the water in Rio.
