Track and field star Jereem Richards proposes to longtime girlfriend

Track and field athlete Jereem Richards is now engaged. 

The 25-year-old sprinter proposed to his girlfriend of seven years, Kayja Thomson, on what appeared to be their seven-year anniversary. 

He made the announcement via his Instagram earlier this week. His proposal included roses and balloons with the important question, 'Will You Marry Me?' displayed.

The post was accompanied by a heartfelt caption.

"Today marks 7years that we been on this journey together. And each and every second of every day has been a blessing. I really admire the way you’ve blossomed and matured, and I can’t wait to begin a new journey with you baby❤️. I love you. You made me the happiest man alive!!!!"

Jereem recently made history in April 2018, becoming the first male 200 m medallist for Trinidad and Tobago since 1970 after winning gold at the Commonwealth Games.
