On August 27th, MBC's third 'Idol Star Athletics Championships' kicked off at the Jamshil Stadium amidst the roar of 10,000 fans. Hundreds of idols gathered to compete against one another in numerous athletic activities. The program was led by anchorman Oh Sang Jin, Kim Je Dong, Yoon Yeo Choon, and Boom. The opening event began with Mighty Mouth's Shorry, who parodied the 'hoop boy' from the '88 Seoul Olympics; this was then followed by Boom Academy's parody of Stevie Wonder. The male 100m preliminary race was the first athletics event of the day. 10,000 fans roared in support of Super Junior, INFINITE, Dalmatian, B1A4, ZE:A, Mighty Mouth, MBLAQ, SHINee, TEEN TOP, Hwanhee, gagman Kim Kyung Jin, David Oh, Baek Chung Gang and many others. The event reported a few injuries here and there, but nothing that the boys couldn't handle. After the male match, the women lined up for their own preliminary match, including T-ara, miss A, Rania, SISTAR, A Pink, 5dolls, Rainbow, Dal Shabet, Jewelry, and Nine Muses. Other competitions included hurdles, long jumps, and high jumps. Be sure to check back with allkpop for the full, two-day Chuseok special next month! [gallery] Source + Photos: Seoul NTN via Nate
