Morghan King competed on Saturday, the first day of competition following the Opening Ceremony. King proceeded to snatch 73kg, a new American record in the 48kg weight class. After a 100kg clean and jerk, King finished 6th in her weight class.
That first paragraph would normally be enough to classify one’s experience at the Olympics as awesome. But…
…then yesterday we found out that King’s boyfriend, Dean Kruse, proposed and the couple is now getting married! Congrats Morghan and Dean!
“I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the Ages of this world alone.” My life has been a non stop adventure with you since we met. You've changed my life for the better in every aspect. Without you, this Olympic dream would never have been possible. No one will ever understand the amount of coaching and work you put into my weightlifting career but I am forever in your debt. Thank you for loving me day in and day out. I'm the luckiest girl in the world to be forever yours. Love you! ❤️
