Talk about a memorable day at the Olympics for two former Florida triple jumpers.
On Tuesday morning, Christian Taylor captured gold in Rio, and Will Claye won silver. You can read about their background at Florida together here.
But Claye will come home with something much more memorable than a medal. After the race, Claye became engaged with an American flag draped over his shoulders.
Check out the photo of the big moment and Claye’s reaction below. He won’t forget this day.
