She captioned the post “Mr. & Mrs. Levrone ❤️‍🔥 PT. 1 05.06.2022”, so here’s hoping there will be a PT. 2 and we’ll get to see more of the beautiful couple.

The McLaughlin-Levrone Wedding

Sydney McLaughlin is the 2020 Tokyo Olympics gold medalist and holder of the current world record of 51.46 seconds in the women’s 400-meter hurdles. Her now-husband is a former NFL player, retired, and currently working as a Project Engineer at the Whiting-Turner Company. Andre Levrone Jr. proposed to the rising sprinter at the Four Seasons Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, last August and made headlines. A major reason was because McLaughlin had just come from her record-breaking victory in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

They both have been open about their relationship and what makes them perfect for each other. McLaughlin wrote a beautiful message to her then-fiance Andre on their engagement post. “Andre, you are the most God-fearing, passionate, honest, loving, hard working, protective, and genuine man I’ve ever met. I see Jesus in you. And as a result it makes you so easy to love,” she said.
