Former Virginia Tech and Hermitage standout Queen Harrison helped steal the show Tuesday morning at the Rio Olympics.
Her boyfriend, Will Claye (formerly of University of Florida) not only hop, skipped, and jumped his way to back-to-back silver medals in the triple jump but he also jumped into the stands and got down on a knee to propose to Queen.
"I'm going to go out there and do what I have to do on the track first and I am going to make her my fiancée after that." - Claye (AP News)
She said yes!
Queen entered the season with high hopes of making her second Olympic team. She finished just shy of that goal with her fourth place finish missing the team by .02 seconds. Though she was running the 100mH at these trials, she actually made the Olympic final in the 400mH back in 2008.
So despite not being in Rio as a competitor, Queen is no doubt very happy of how the Olympics went for her and her now fiancé.
And for those that remember Queen falling in the 2005 Colonial District 300H, breaking her collar bone, getting up, and winning the race... you can agree that we have not seen the last of Queen on the track.
