Tokyo Olympics: Maria Belén Perez Maurice loses medal, but receives a surprise proposal from director Lucas Saused

Argentine swordfighter Maria Belén Perez Maurice Tokyo Olympics On Monday, the gold ring and celebration are still going well, as her coach and partner for 17 years asked her questions during the interview.

Perez Maurice’s Olympic run ended after she lost HungaryAnna Merton in a female saber individual sport between the ages of 15 and 12. But the 36-year-old swordfighter has a reason to celebrate.

Her coach and partner, Lucas Saused, decided to propose on the camera during an interview on an Argentine channel over her defeat at the Olympics.

Standing behind her, Saused quietly flashed a handwritten sign saying “Would you like to get married?” With a little cat graffiti.

Perez Maurice was initially unaware of the gesture. She was surprised after a reporter interviewed for her suddenly laughed and told her to look back.

The fencing player gladly accepted the proposal after Saused fell on one knee after the moment of the first shock. The couple then shared an emotional moment on the camera.

“They (the media) told me to look back, and he had a letter. I forgot everything. I said,’What a hell,'” she said.

“We are very happy. We are very good partners. Of course there are fights, but we enjoy each other’s time. We love each other very much and want to spend our lives together. We are celebrating with a big barbecue in Buenos Aires, “she added.

This isn’t the first time Saucedo has proposed to her. In 2010, Perez Maurice faced a refusal because he said he was too young and uncomfortable.

Preparing an improvisational proposal has never been an easy task for Saucedo. He said he sought help from Olympic volunteers. The volunteer initially refused, but Saucedo agreed to exchange Olympic pins for him in exchange for supplies.

He said he would have been waiting for the right moment if she had won a medal at the tournament.

“I love her, and when she lost the match (to Merton) she became very sad … I wrote on paper at that moment. If she wins, no , I would have been waiting for that moment [to propose]”Saused said.
