Cosmic Girls' Cheng Xiao is impressing fans with her rhythmic gymnastics at MBC's 'Idol Star Athletics Championships.'


A video is going viral where she shows off her flexible body in rhythmic gymnastics preparing for the Lunar New Year special of 'Idol Star Athletics Championships' at a gymnasium in Gyeonggi Providence.


Cheng Xiao makes impressive cartwheels while holding a hula hoop, demonstrating her quick reflexes.  Taking home the gold medal last year, the singer seems a bit pressured in this round.


The broadcast date for the Lunar New Year special is slated to be on January 30.

    I love chengxiao I think because of the year before she was pressured and tense. Its sad that she didn't win but judging should be fair so I understand why Mina won. Mistakes = deduction. This is how the support it judge. It really depends on how the athletes executes their routine.

    Ok so I see a lot angry coments about the fact that she didn't won and I understand why because it's amazing she could pull that routine without having practiced years for it. However, as a former gymnast, I'm going to be very honest and explain you the judging criteria in this sport. In gymnast, quality is the most important thing, we get deductions for the smallest things such as feet positions in landings etc... The total points for a routine is done by adding the difficulty score to the performance score, the difficulty one is fixed deppending on the elements that the gymnast preforms and the performance one depends on how the gymnast performs them. So if the gymnast chooses to do crazy stunts but doesn't complete them perfectly, the performance score will only get lower with the deductions and so, the total score will be much lower than a gymnast that chooses to do something simpler but it's sure that will perform that with much more quality. I'm sorry If my English is not that good but I tried my best.

    I get all that, but I didn't think Mina had a better quality routine either. She seemed off balance the whole time.

    I just saw her performance again and honestly, I think the transitions between the elements were really smooth and everything about the whole routine was on point. I would prefer Cheng Xiao to win as well, I was trully amazed by her performance and I don't think they should judge Idols like true gymnasts but the truth is Mina was more flawless in what she presented

    Thanks for the clarification, I did see both performances (the rehearsal version i mean) and i think if Chengxiao didnt make the mistakes people said she made she wouldve won gold. Im seeing too many people suddenly become gymnast professionals when they know nothing about the sport. Its good to see theres someone who actually knows how it works :)

    Thanks! I'm just glad my comment was actually useful haha And I think she would have definitely won gold, you don't need to be a gymnastics expert to see the difference between both routines

    For someone who isn't actually a gymnast, that was really good.
