Quebec Olympian Jennifer Abel Got Engaged To A Montreal Boxer & The ...

Olympic diver Jennifer Abel — who hails from Laval — is having one heck of a week. On July 25, she won a silver medal at Tokyo 2020 and today she announced that she got engaged to Montreal boxer David Lemieux, posting a video of his airport proposal on Instagram.

In an August 3 Instagram story posted to Abel's account, you can see Lemieux driving as "Marry You" by Bruno Mars plays in the backround. Abel then pops into the frame.

She is seen smiling with her hand close to her face, revealing an engagement ring. Lemieux then tenderly kisses her forehead.

According to photos shared on social media, the athletes appear to have been dating since around 2016.

The couple already has a busy family life together, as Lemieux is the father of two children, Lilyanna and Léon.
