US Weightlifter Morghan King Gets Engaged at Olympics

Morghan King was already leaving the Rio Olympics with an American record of 83kg (182.9 lbs) in the snatch. But now she'll also be leaving with an engagement ring.

King announced her engagement to fiancé — and coach — Dean Kruse via Instagram.

“Without you, this Olympic dream would never have been possible,” she posted, calling her life “a non stop adventure” after having met Kruse.

She credited him for his coaching skills and the work he’s put into her weightlifting career. 

“Thank you for loving me day in and day out,” she added. “I’m the luckiest girl in the world to be forever yours. Love you!”
