Canada's Olympians Stephanie Labbé and Georgia Simmerling Got Engaged

Two athletes who were part of Canada's Olympic team in Tokyo have announced their engagement.

Stephanie Labbé and Georgia Simmerling posted the exciting news on their personal Instagram accounts.

"Through my ugly crying I could barely hear what you said, but what I do know is that spending the rest of my life with you by my side is the greatest gift. My heart and soul are complete with you in my life. I feel safe, calm and hopeful that no matter what comes our way we will be ok. My best friend, my soulmate, my rock, my FIANCÉE," Labbé wrote.

Labbé was the goalkeeper who helped Canada to a gold medal by winning a penalty shoot-out against Sweden in the Olympic soccer final.

Fellow athlete Simmerling, who is part of Team Canada's track cycling team, won bronze in the women's team pursuit.

"A camping trip we'll never forget," Simmerling wrote on Instagram. "I asked my best friend to spend the rest of her life with me aaaand (sic) SHE SAID YAAASSSSS! My heart is so full. I love you with all that I am."

Love was in the air after the Games for fellow Canadian Olympic athlete Jennifer Abel, who said "yes to [her] soulmate" Montreal boxer David Lemieux, at the airport after coming home from Tokyo.
