Chinese swimmer Fu Yuanhui has been making headlines for her adorable and unfiltered demeanor during the Olympics. Now the world has yet another Chinese athlete to love: high jumper Zhang Guowei.
Zhang, 25, is known for his photos where he stands in weird poses, his signature pose is the Kung fu crane, according to Shanghaiist.
A glimpse at his ID cards will give you a good idea of the personality behind Zhang Guowei.
His body could give heart throb Ning Zetao a run for his money.
He loves getting the crowd rowled up after each successful jump.
He can also twerk!
Like all pro athletes, Zhang has to eat quite of bit of food to keep himself fully charged.
Zhang is more than a lovable character though, he’s a silver medalist at the 2012 Asian Indoor Athletics Championships and has been a finalist at the World Championships in Athletics and the IAAF World Indoor Championships. He also represented China at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
Unfortunately, he only ranked 25th in the qualifiers during the Rio Olympics. So he will not be in the finals. He left a message to his fans on Weibo expressing his sadness:
“Don’t search for excuses for me, please. I am a professional athlete and I lost. The moment I landed on the mat, I felt scared and guilty. I am so sorry that I let you guys down,” Zhang wrote (translated by Shanghaiist)
Keep doing what you doing brah!
