Watch heartwarming moment Paralympic guide proposes to blind athlete on track after race at Tokyo 2020
PARALYMPIAN Keula Nidreia Pereira Semedo narrowly missed out on the women's 200m final in Tokyo.
But the blind Cape Verdean's despair turned to pure joy, after she was PROPOSED TO by her guide on the track.
Pereira Semedo, 32, had just completed her semi-final when running guide Manuel Antonio Vaz da Veiga came over to greet her.
To her shock, Vaz da Veiga took her by the hand before brandishing a ring.
He asked the runner to marry him while still surrounded by her fellow athletes.
And to his relief, she said yes.
Vaz da Veiga put the ring on her finger before the pair embraced, while being applauded by her colleagues.

But the smattering of officials, coaches and athletes in the stands gave the happy couple a standing ovation.
Pereira Semedo's Paralympic adventure may not have resulted in her bringing home a medal.
But bringing home a fiance instead isn't too bad a substitute.
