HARARE – Kirsty Coventry swapped her swimming costume for a bridal frock on Saturday when she wedded fiancé Tyrone Seward.
The two-time Olympic champion and former world record holder last year revealed plans to marry long-time boyfriend Seward, who is also her manager.
The lovebirds tied the knot during a private ceremony in Harare.
Last year the 28-year-old Zimbabwean sporting icon revealed that 32-year-old Tyrone was set to pay lobola to the Coventrys. And following the traditional ceremony, wedding vows were exchanged on Saturday.
“Tyrone and I are married!” Kirsty posted on her Facebook page yesterday, drawing congratulation messages from her followers.
“You have done us all proud in the past, so have you today and welcome Tyrone, for the wife you married, our wonder girl, our sister and our pride, we love you!,” commented Nkululeko Mkastos Sibanda.
