A heart melting scene was witnessed in the Rio Olympics when Brazilian women’s rugby player Isadora Cerullo accepted a marriage proposal from her girlfriend,Marjorie Enya, at the medals ceremony for the first Olympic rugby sevens competition on Monday. Cerullo’s team finished ninth in the competition.
After watching the final between Australia and New Zealand and the conclusion of the medal ceremony, Enya, a manager at the Deodoro stadium, took to the pitch for a special announcement of her own and asked Isadora to marry her. Enya took the microphone to pop the question to Cerullo on the pitch. A tearful Cerullo accepted and, with no ring, 28-year-old Enya tied a ribbon to her finger.
