Niel has secured the gold medal in high jump on MBC‘s ‘Idol Star Olympics‘, which aired on the 26th.
The highest record of 173 cm in high jump was set by SHINee‘s Minho previously, and the the competing athletes this time around were not only trying for a gold medal but also were trying their hands at setting a new record.
B1A4‘s Sandeul, INFINITE‘s Sungyeol, TEEN TOP‘s Ricky, and 2AM‘s Jinwoon all made valiant attempts, but unfortunately got caught on the bar at 170 cm. However, TEEN TOP’s Niel easily jumped over the bar and clinched the gold medal.
However, Niel didn’t stop there as he challenged himself to break Minho’s record and proved to be successful as he raised the bar, setting a new record of 174 cm for these ‘Idol Star Athletic Championship’ events.
After confirming the new record, the broadcasters jumped up cheering, and fellow TEEN TOP members ran to Niel to share his happiness.
Niel jokingly provoked Minho’s competitive nature by commenting, “I want to meet with SHINee’s Minho sunbae.” “Please give me a cell phone right now,” he pleaded to his agency’s boss, Shinhwa‘s Andy.
