Vinesh Phogat, the first Indian female wrestler to win Gold at the ongoing Asian Games 2018 is on cloud nine for more reasons than one. Apart from winning Gold at the Games and making everyone proud, the wrestler has another reason to celebrate now.
What an incredibly phenomenal feeling to win the #AsianGames Gold 🥇👌 This medal is for #India 🇮🇳 and for all our wonderful people who keep motivating me with their blessings and good wishes 😊 A big thank you to the @wrestlingfederation, SAI, @olympicgoldquest, and coach Woller Akos who have played important roles in my journey towards this medal. A big thank you and a tight hug to my physio @ruchu_31 and the entire team for keeping my body in great shape! This is just the start 🙏💪 #NeverStop
The reason for her doubled happiness is her engagement with her long-time boyfriend Somvir Rathi. Yep, Vinesh and Somvir got engaged at the Delhi International airport on Saturday itself, when Vinesh returned from Jakarta post her win. The engagement ceremony took place in the presence of both the families and a lot of paparazzi. An elated Vinesh posted pictures from the happy occasion on her Instagram profile. Check them out:
Thank you everyone for making me feel special with your warm and beautiful birthday wishes.☺️ I am really touched and humbled with all the blessings showered on us. 🙏🏽 This birthday will always be a memorable one 🇮🇳🥇❤️🤗
The caption was so sweet and did justice to the happiness Vinesh must be feeling at the time:
"Thank you, everyone, for making me feel special with your warm and beautiful birthday wishes. I am really touched and humbled by all the blessings showered on us. This birthday will always be a memorable one."
They even cut their engagement cake at the airport itself, which we think is super cute! Incidentally, it was also Vinesh's birthday on the very same day i.e. 25 August. So the celebrations were not just doubled, but tripled.
Here's another picture Vinesh posted, with a very adorable caption might we add:
The caption read:
"The best decision I ever made! Glad you pinned me for life."
Somvir is also a Greco-Roman wrestler, and the caption just made so much sense for them!
Our heartiest congratulations to Vinesh for the win and to the lovely couple on the beginning of this new journey. May they always be this happy!
