“I wanted to show people that love wins.”

This year’s Olympics have been full of historic firsts, moments of LGBTQ visibility and devastating upsets but one couple has taken gold in Olympic love. Marjorie Enya, a manager at Deodoro Stadium, and Isadora Cerullo, a rugby player for the Brazilian Olympic team, have been together for two years when the Brazilian team finished in 9th at the Olympic Games. “As soon as I knew she was in the squad I thought I have to make this special,” Enya told BBC Sport.

And Enya made good on her promise to make Cerullo’s time at the Olympics truly magical.

After Brazil played their final game, Enya decided it was time to take their relationship to the next level and proposed in front of volunteers and players. Enya told BBC Sports that she knew the rest of the team would celebrate their engagement so it felt like the right time to pop the question.

“The Olympic Games can look like closure but, for me, it’s starting a new life with someone,” Enya told BBC Sports. “I wanted to show people that love wins.”

Congratulations, ladies! ?❤️
