Veteran Filipino tennis player Ruben Gonzales might have missed out on the gold in the 30th Southeast Asian Games in men’s doubles, but he still went home a winner.
After the victory ceremony for the aforementioned tennis event, the 34-year-old tennis ace askedfor long-time girlfriend Michele Bumgarner’s hand in marriage.
Without any hesitation, the 30-year-old racing driver accepted the proposal to the cheers of the audience who witnessed both the match and the engagement.
In what might be a first in the history of the Southeast Asian Games, two athletes will be taking their relationship to another level with a wedding in the offing.
Earlier, Gonzales and Treat Huey lost in an all-Filipino battle for the men’s doubles crown against Francis Alcantara and Jeson Patrombon, 7-6, 7-5.
In tennis, love means nothing, but what happened earlier showed love is everything for Gonzales and Bumgarner.
