Canadian athlete Jennifer Abel got engaged to professional Canadian boxer David Lemieux after coming home from Tokyo where she won a silver medal and represented the country on the podium.

The Olympic-winning diver from Quebec posted on Instagram about the proposal and wrote, "I said YES to my soulmate."

She posted a photo of her and her fiance showing off the ring and also a video of Lemieux surprising her at the airport when she came home from Tokyo by getting down on one knee and asking her to marry him.

The newly engaged couple shared a hug and a kiss in the middle of the airport as Abel cried.

Abel and her diving partner Mélissa Citrini-Beaulieu won silver in the women's 3-metre synchronized springboard event at the Tokyo Olympics.
