“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.

“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.”
