Uganda volleyball star Daudi Okello has secured his first silverware of the season in the form of girlfriend Sandra Nanziri.

Despite losing to table leaders Woori Capitals in the Korean V league on Wednesday morning, Okello, who plays for Hyundai Sky Walkers decided to score with a surprise marriage proposal to her Ugandan girlfriend.

The 25 year old attacker left teammates and fans in awe as he went down on one knee to ask the all-important question. Luckily for Okello there was no drama as she said yes sending everyone into raptures.

“I chose to propose on court because I love volleyball and it’s a memory. We have been together for three and a half years so it was time,” an excited Okello told New Vision.

Sandra also plays volleyball with Thunders Volleyball club although not actively. Okello says the wedding should happen soon enough for now congratulations are in order.

Okello follows a British basketball player Jamell Anderson who landed the shot of his career when he popped the question on the court at the Commonwealth Games in April 2018.

Anderson asked fellow England basketball player Georgia Jones to marry him just moments after the men's team beat Cameroon 81-54.

Maryland Terrapins basketball player Ivan Bender also proposed during a Senior Night ceremony Andrea Knezevic on court.

With his girlfriend mid court, Bender approached her, waved to the crowd, then got down on one knee and proposed to the delight of fans and players in March 2019.
