Getting a marriage proposal is a big dream for many. A Norwegian ski ace suddenly feels quite grown up because of the question.
Munich – "Will you marry me?" is perhaps one of the most beautiful questions you ask or are asked in your life. A very special moment that the Norwegian ski star Ragnhild Mowinckel was also able to experience at the end of April. On Instagram, she shared with her fans some photos in which she and her partner Mathias Tangenes can be seen. She wrote: "You are now bound to me for a lifetime."

Ski star Ragnhild Mowinckel engaged: This is how Mathias Tangenes proposed to her
Numerous fans and stars from the winter sports world congratulated, including Felix Neureuther, who commented on the post with an emojy and "Congrats" (to German: "Congratulations"). But how did the application proceed in the first place? The 30-year-old revealed this to the Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang about five weeks later.
"It was very nice," she said. Tangenes had proposed to her at home, which she was very happy about. "There was no flash mob on the street or anything else. Luckily, because I would have died then," she said with a laugh. "It was very cozy, very pleasant and perfectly suited for us."
Ski star Ragnhild Mowinckel thought: "Damn, I'm getting old"
But in between all the luck, Mowinckel also had another feeling, as she reveals with a wink: "I had the feeling that we immediately got 10,000 adult points. I'm no longer someone who just wanders around in life, but I thought to myself, 'Damn, I'm getting old,'" she is quoted as saying in the Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang.
Mowinckel does not yet know when the wedding will take place. "The only thing I know is that I'm not going to get married this season," she said. The Norwegian wants to concentrate on her career, which really took off again last season and resulted in winning the bronze medal in the giant slalom at the World Championships. A well-deserved reward for their hard work, which has been marked by injuries in recent years.
The French biathlon pair Célia Aymonier and Simon Desthieux are already one step further than Mowinckel and Tangenes. They became parents to a son back in 2021 and recently tied the knot at a dream wedding. (msb)
