The proposal happened at Deodoro Stadium after Cerullo's team finished ninth in the Olympics' inaugural showing of the event. 

After the medal ceremony, Enya, who is a manager at the stadium, grabbed a microphone and gave an emotional speech to the entire crowd.

Enya told the BBC afterward, "As soon as I knew she was in the squad I thought, 'I have to make this special ... The Olympic Games can look like closure but, for me, it's starting a new life with someone."
