BTOB‘s Minhyuk and Tahiti‘s Jisoo have become the new King & Queen of Idol Sports.
MBC‘s ‘Idol Star Athletics Championship‘ finally aired on February 11th. Despite facing some tough competition, Jisoo won the gold medal for the women’s 70 meter run final which included Nine Muses‘Eunji, D-Unit‘s U-zin, Hello Venus‘ Alice, and Dal Shabet‘s Ga Eun. During the final, Jisoo just beat out Eunji and Ga Eun by inches. Even the slow motion replay showed that the three ladies had finished almost simultaneously. However, in the end Jisoo was announced to have finished just 0.01 seconds before the 2nd place Eunji.
On the male side, Minhyuk won 2 gold medals for himself, beating out the favorite SHINee‘s Minho in hurdles and also winning the 70 meter race. During the hurdles race, Minho fell over one of the hurdles in the middle of the race and couldn’t recover in time. Minhyuk also showed his dominance in the men’s 70 meters final as he beat out INFINITE‘s Hoya to win the gold medal for that event as well.
