Found February 13, 2012 on Bush League Chronicle:
Not only did two-time gold medalist Matt Grevers win the 100-meter backstroke at last weekend's Missouri Grand Prix, but he also won the heart of his beloved lady.

After concocting an elaborate plan to propose to his longtime girlfriend, fellow National team swimmer Annie Chandler, Grevers did just that after accepting his medal for the race.

Said Grevers after the fact: "I've just been searching for a unique way to pop the question. My whole family is here and I figured it would be a perfect opportunity and a unique situation."

You figured right, man.
