SHE SAID YES: Girlfriend Of Brazilian Olympic Rugby Player Isadora Cerullo Proposes As Team Cheers

Roughly translated from ABC España:

The gold medal-winning Australian female rugby delegation isn’t alone in celebrating. Isadora Cerullo, who plays for Brazil, tonight received a marriage proposal from her partner, who works as a volunteer for the Rio Games. The proposal was accepted and sealed with a kiss in front of journalists from around the world. The proposal took place during the closing ceremony of the women’s rugby competition where Australia, New Zealand, and Canada won gold, silver, and bronze, respectively. Unfortunately the Brazilian team finished in ninth place, although the proposal immediately caught the attention of those attending the closing ceremony: journalists, athletes, and the public. Same-sex marriage was legalized in Brazil in 2013. Yet the country still lives immersed in the process of visibility and normalization.
