These couples have won the gold when it comes to popped questions — and we're not just talking about gold engagement rings! There must be something in the protein shakes the Olympic athletes are guzzling, because it seems like everyone is getting engaged at the 2016 summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro! Forgot those Olympic rings — these athletes have their eyes on ones much more sparkly!
According to The Washington Post four pairs of sporty sweethearts are planning to tie the knot after getting engaged at the games. And while Michael Phelps propelling through the water or Simone Biles' aerial twist and turns sent our pulses racing, our hearts practically flew out of our chests when these questions were spontaneously popped.
Below, check out the four couples whose medals aren't their only gold swag they scored from the 2016 Olympics!
Isadora Cerullo and Marjorie Enya
First up of the engaged gang is Brazilian rugby player Isadora Cerullo, whose sweetheart Marjorie Enya proposed at the games last week. After the winners of the women's rugby competition were announced, Cerullo snagged the title of the very first athlete to get engaged at the Olympics, when Cerullo unexpectedly popped the question right there on the field. "I wanted to show people that love wins," Cerullo told the BBC. Heck, it won the gold!

He Zi and Qin Kai
These two dove into commitment — literally! After Chinese diver He Zi received the silver medal for her performance in the women's three-meter springboard this weekend, her longtime beau Qin Kai proposed right beside the pool. "He said a lot of things there at the podium," Zi later told reporters of the proposal, according to CNN. "He made a lot of promises, but the thing that has touched me the most is that I think this is the guy I can trust for the rest of my life." Kai is also an Olympian champ, taking home both his bride and the bronze medal for the men's synchronized three-meter springboard. No big deal...
Tom Bosworth and Harry Dinley
After competing in the men's 20km event, British race walker Tom Bosworth got down on knee on Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana Beach and proposed to his boyfriend Harry Dinely. "He said YES!!!" the Olympian captioned their proposal pic on Twitter.
Will Claye and Queen Harrison
Talk about taking a jump! After leaping his way to victory and snagging the silver medal for the track and field triple jump, Team USA's Will Claye headed into the stands and proposed to his girlfriend, 2008 Olympic hurdler Queen Harrison. "I'm gonna go out there and do what I have to do on the track first," Claye later explained to The Washington Post. "And then I'm gonna make her my fiancé after that." And that, this Olympian certainly did! "It was just something I felt like I had to do today," he said.
And of course, the bride-to-be had the most fitting EngagementRingSelfie we've ever seen...
