Talk about a proposal on fire!
World all-around champion Artur Dalaoyan of Russia is spoken for for good: The elegant 22-year-old posted a photo on Instagram showing him on bended knee holding a ring box out to girlfriend Olenka Borodina as a sentence (“Will you marry me?” perhaps) blazed behind him in the snowy landscape.
“She said YES,” Dalaloyan captioned the post, adding a ring emoji and the hashtag #happiness.
Doing wonderful things for the lady in his life has obviously been preoccupying Dalaloyan’s thoughts lately. Ahead of International Women’s Day on March 8, he posted a photo of himself snowboarding with Borodina, and asked followers what the best thing they’ve ever done for the women in their lives.
After his runaway victory at the Stuttgart World Cup two weeks ago, Dalaloyan will be heavily favored to win the men’s all-around title at next month’s European Championships in Szczecin, Poland. He finished second to Ukraine’s Oleg Verniaiev in 2017, the last time the men’s all-around was contested at Euros, and won five medals at the 2018 World Championships, including Russia’s first men’s all-around gold since Nikolay Kryukov in 1999.
