Sakshi Malik, Rio Olympic medallist got engaged to her wrestler boyfriend Satyawart Kadian at her residence in Rohtak on Sunday.
The 24-year-old wrestler had earlier spoken about her relationship with Satyawart in the media.
"It was a private function. Only the families of the to-be bride and groom attended the event and it went very well," Satyawart's father Arjuna Awardee Satyavan Pehelwan said.
Satyawart (22), is two years younger to Sakshi and trains at his father's akhada in Rohtak. He won his first bronze medal at the 2010 Youth Olympics. The two were said to have fallen in love during wrestling tournaments.
About Satyawart, Olympic bronze medallist Sakshi had earlier said, "He is very supportive and thinks of my dreams as his own."
While the engagement was on the cards for a long time, the wedding dates are something that they are yet to decide on.
"They both are wrestlers so they have to chalk out dates out of their schedule of endless tournaments. So, we cannot say right now about the wedding," Satyavan was quoted as saying by a report in Hindustan Times.
Sakshi won many hearts and rose to fame after she won bronze medal in 58kg category in the women's freestyle wrestling in Rio Olympics 2016. She also became only the fourth woman to achieve the feat along with shuttler PV Sindhu becoming the fifth.
Sakshi was given a welcoming reception in her home state, as were Sindhu and gymnast Dipa Karmakar following their return to India after the Games.
