Chen Yi, a seven-and-a half-year old boy from Hangzhou, Zhejiang, recently caught people’s eyes because of his eight-pack abs, Hangzhou.com.cn reported on July 3.
Chen caught the public’s attention after winning six gold medals and one silver medal in a gymnastics competition at a major sports event in Hangzhou.
He was chosen to be cultivated in gymnastics at a professional sports school in the city when he was just five years old in kindergarten for his bravery and jumping skills. Despite the tough training, Chen never gave up.
Many hours of training in gymnastics has helped Chen build strong abdominal muscles, a good figure, flexibility, and good motor coordination, Chen’s coach said.
