American triple jumper Will Claye now has two reasons to celebrate.
Immediately after winning the silver medal, the San Diego-based athlete proposed to his girlfriend Queen Harrison in Rio on Tuesday. She said yes.
Claye landed a personal best with a 17.76-meter jump — not good enough for the gold. That went to the U.S.’s Christian Taylor. The silver medalist wasted no time after his win to put the ring on Harrison’s finger.
Harrison is also an Olympic athlete. The hurdler competed in the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing and won gold in the 100-meter hurdles at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto.
Draped in the stars and stripes, and surrounded by fans and photographers, Claye popped the question.
News of the proposal lit up social media, with fans sharing photos of the ring.
Check out the video below of Will describing how he proposed Queen Harrison after he jumped into the stands after winning silver medal in the triple jump.
