Olympic proposal - Moments of London 2012

London 2012 has been a special experience, full of moments that could have been lifted directly from a dream, this is one such moment...
Written on Thursday, 9th of August, 2012:
   Josh, 29, and Lisa, 28, from Texas, had been in London for the week to experience the Olympics first hand. They'd seen a few different sports, but today was their last day in the Olympic Park and they were flying home on Saturday.
Josh told me he had been carrying the ring around all day, "nervous as hell". But as they were getting ready to leave the park he realised, they'd NEVER be here, in this moment, ever again, so he got down on his knee THERE AND THEN. I turned just as he stopped and turned to her. 

The two of them hugged for about 5 minutes whilst he was still on his knees for what seemed like a lifetime. With the warm glow of the sun shining on them, setting just behind the Olympic stadium, and both of their legs shaking, Josh pulled out the ring and asked her:

"Will you be with me forever, will you be my wife?"
She said...yes, he put the ring on her finger.
