Congratulations have been pouring in from track and field fans and colleagues for Olympians ​Kemar Bailey-Cole and Ristananna Tracey.

The couple who have been in a relationship since 2009, tied the knot on Saturday.

They have taken to social media site Instagram to share images of the weekend nuptials with the hashtag #BaileyColeForTheRistaOurLives.

Other social media posts revealed the new couple having their first dance to Beyonce's 1+1, and Ristananna sweetly singing the timeless wedding jam, Christina Perri's A Thousand Years.

The couple started striding side-by-side, attaching their names together before Ristananna took her stroll down the aisle. 

Last year, the athletes linked their names to form the Rista & Bailey Cole Foundation. 

To date, the foundation has offered charity to St. Monica's Home and the Homestead Place of Safety. 

They have also extended support to St. Theresa's Preparatory School, Papine High School and Edwin Allen High School.
