He Zi is an Olympic athlete from China who completely crushed her dive in the women's 3-meter springboard final on Sunday. And she got silver!

And what happened at the end of her medal ceremony was also pretty exciting.

Her boyfriend Qin Kai, 30, who had won bronze in the men's 3-m synchronized springboard last week, seized the moment at the podium ceremony, bent down on one knee and offered up an engagement ring.

It was really really cute!

He Zi burst into tears but gladly accepted, as cheers and applause came from the spectators, the officials and their fellow competitors.

Qin seemed pretty stoked about the "yes" part, too.

This is the second proposal seen so far at the Rio Games. Last week in Rio, volunteer Marjorie Enya proposed to her girlfriend, Brazilian rugby player Isadora Cerullo.

Love is in the air at Rio.
