Olympic Swimmer Surprises Girlfriend, Olympian Matt Grevers proposed to his girlfriend and teammate, Annie Chandler, on the medal stand. His plan was to win a medal and then propose.
U.S. Olympian Matt Grevers, 26, won the 100-meter backstroke Saturday at the Missouri Grand Prix, and pulled off a surprise proposal to his girlfriend and teammate, Annie Chandler, on the medal stand.
Almost immediately after Chandler, 24, placed the gold medal around Grevers’ neck, he got down on one knee and placed a diamond ring on her finger.
“I’ve just been searching for a unique way to pop the question,” Grevers told The Washington Post. “My whole family is here and I figured this would be a perfect opportunity and a unique situation.”
Grevers’ older brother Andy, an assistant swimming and diving coach at the University of Missouri, helped him execute his plan by sneaking him the ring.
Grevers originally planned a poolside proposal on Friday, following Chandler’s breaststroke competition. But he postponed the surprise after she came in fifth place.
