There was a proposal on the pitch Monday in Rio. Team Brazil rugby player Isadora Cerullo of Brazil said yes to the marriage proposal of her partner, Olympic volunteer Marjorie Enya, after the women's gold medal match between Australia and New Zealand at Deodoro Stadium.
Cerullo competed for Brazil but grew up in North Carolina. She answered the host country's call for players since Brazil -- the homeland of both of her parents -- does not have a rugby tradition but still wanted to field a team during the Rio Games.
