Love Wins: Woman Proposes to Girlfriend at Olympics

One of the best moments of the 2016 Olympics wasn't related to sport.

An Olympics official made a grand wedding proposal to her girlfriend in the Rio rugby stadium and it captured the attention of the world.

Brazilian player Isadora Cerullo, 25, was blown away by a marriage proposal following the historic women's rugby finale between Australia and New Zealand. 

Marjorie Enya, the 28-year-old venue manager, walked onto the field after the medal ceremony and used the microphone to propose to her girlfriend. 

"As soon as I knew she was in the squad I thought I have to make this special," Enya told BBC.

"I know rugby people are amazing and they would embrace it. She is the love of my life."

She finished off by saying: "I wanted to show people that love wins." 


Marjorie and Isadora live together in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

For those wondering, the Australian women's rugby sevens team won the grand final - which was the first time this event has been played at an Olympic Games.
