This Olympic race walker definitely picked up the pace in his relationship.

Tom Bosworth of Great Britain revealed on Monday that he proposed to Harry Dineley on a beach in Rio de Janeiro ― and his boyfriend said yes.

While Bosworth finished sixth in the 20-kilometer race, it looks like popping the question earned him something even more valuable than any medal given at the Games.

The Rio Olympics have been full of romance.

On Sunday, Chinese diver He Zi  won a silver medal and then accepted a proposal from boyfriend Qin Kai after the ceremony. Earlier in the Games, stadium manage rMarjorie Enya asked Brazilian rugby player Isadora Cerullo for her hand in marriage.

All right, Olympians, who’s next?
