Team USA Swimmer Matt Grevers Proposes To Teammate Annie Chandler On The Medal Stand

If you needed more evidence that the Midwest is the most romantic region of the United States, here you go:

This weekend at the Missouri Grand Prix swim meet, three-time Olympic medalist and Chicagoland native Matt Grevers proposed to his girlfriend and Team USA teammate Annie Chandler from the medal stand.

Grevers, a Northwestern alum, won the 100 backstroke (the event in which he won a silver medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing). During the medal ceremony he asked Chandler, a breaststroke specialist, to join him on the stand, where he popped the question.

How he fit an engagement ring in his racing suit is anybody’s guess.

Here’s the video:

 

Had Grevers not won the 100 backstroke, his proposal would have been delayed.

So, if you ever need a little extra motivation during a race, plan to offer the love of your life your hand in matrimony if and only if you win.
