The Olympic proposing team are 3 for 3 so far at the Rio de Janeiro Games.
U.S. triple jumper Will Claye was the latest to ask his partner to marry him at the Olympics, and the third straight to get the right result. Girlfriend and hurdler Queen Harrison said yes when Claye popped the question in the stands at the Olympic Stadium.
Claye won silver, then brought out the diamond he'd been hiding in his backpack during the competition.

Clay kept his intentions a secret, even from his family who were also at the stadium. Harrison, who missed out on the U.S. Olympic team, thought the day was going to be special just because her guy was competing at the Olympics. It was special for a whole lot more.
