Chinese Diver Proposes to Girlfriend After She Won the Olympic Silver Medal

He Zi thought she was just going to accept her medal at the podium, little did she know her boyfriend had something else planned!

If you’re looking for a roller coaster of emotions, just imagine what Chinese Olympic diver He Zi went through when her boyfriend suddenly went up beside her on the podium and proposed!

25 year-old He Zi and her boyfriend, 30 year-old Qin Kai, have been dating for 6 years, and both of them are accomplished divers. In fact, Qin Kai had just won a bronze medal in his own synchronized diving event the week before.

As He Zi was posing for photos at the ceremony with the other divers, Qin Kai suddenly showed up on stage, with an expectant look on his face. Before He Zi could register his presence, the other participants left the podium while Qin Kai approached He Zi. With a red box containing a ring and a glass-encased rose, he went down on one knee and proposed.

“I didn’t know he would propose today and I didn’t expect myself to marry myself out so early,” said He, who tearfully accepted the proposal with a big hug. “I saw him during the afternoon and he seemed to be memorizing something, so I asked him ‘what are you doing?’ and he said he was singing.”

He Zi goes on to say, “I’ve forgotten most of what he’s said (during the proposal), but it’s largely what you can expect like promises, but what touched me the most is that he said he was willing to be bullied by me for life,”

Shi Tingmao, the winner of the gold medal in the same event, says she knew about the proposal before the event. “I’m really happy for them, because these years, be it career or relationships-wise, they have had to face a lot of pressure,” she said.

This proposal is the second in the Rio Olympics. The first was when Isadora Cerullo of the Brazilian women’s rugby team accepted a marriage proposal from her girlfriend at the medals ceremony for the first Olympic rugby sevens competition last week.

Lion Tries to Eat a Baby on Live TV and Her Mother Just Laughs

A frisky lion cub suddenly got a little too rough with a toddler during a live broadcast of the Mexican TV talk show, Con Sello de Mujer.

It shouldn't take an animal attack to remind us of nature's unbreakable law. You can take a lion out of the jungle, but you can't take the jungle out of the lion. To be specific, the animal involved in this story is technically still a lion cub. But, of course, the same condition applies. In any case, the animal is already way more powerful than the baby.

Things seemed fine at first.

Get Olympic Inspiration From Filipino Divers’ Epic Fail In 2015 Southeast Asian Games

The athletes participating in the 2016 Rio Olympics can learn something from the failed performance of two Filipino divers in the 2015 Southeast Asian Games in Singapore.

While news from the 2016 Rio Olympics often highlight the winners, let's not forget that there are losers as well. Then again, they always say that sports isn't about winning — it's about how you play the game. It's also about your ability to keep going even after you suffer defeat. This may explain why the failed dives of two Filipino athletes at the 2015 Southeast Asian Games or SEA Games in Singapore are once again being discussed.

On June 10, 2015, two Filipino divers — John Elmerson Fabriga and John David Pahoyo — participated in the men's three-meter springboard event of the SEA Games. At that time, Fabriga was 21 and Pahoyo was 17.

MH370 Mystery Solved? Washed Up Plane Parts and Passenger Items Finally Showing Up.

By

It has been more than two years since the ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 bound for China went missing. It was March 8, 2014 when the Boeing 777 aircraft vanished without a trace along with its 227 passengers and 12 in-flight crew. After all this time, the relatives of the MH370 passengers haven't gotten any closure yet. Various speculations have arisen from conspiracy theories, terrorist takeover, alien abductions and whatnot. After the intensive search and rescue operations made by the joint efforts of various nations, nothing concrete turned up. Search operations went as far as the areas near Perth, Australia but yielded unfruitful results. Years later, washed up airplane parts are rekindling the MH370 case anew. Could these artifacts tell the untold story of the world's most mysterious airplane crash?
