Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

Taking a cue from Cupid, two gold medal winners in archery are getting married. Perhaps inspired by the Olympic rings, the South Korean couple announced their nuptials just as the games ended. Their romance was sparked during training for the Olympics. And the groom-to-be made it clear that the couple is still in love with their sport, asking reporters please give as much attention to archery as you give to us.
