In China, a young boy with 8-pack abs stunned the internet as people were amused with his toned and muscular body.
Chen-Yi, a seven and a half years old athlete has impressed the people with his abs which made them tag him as the ‘ultimate muscle boy’. Despite his young age, he was already recognized as a topnotch athlete.
Last July 2, the young athlete brought home six gold medals and one silver medal which he won in a gymnastic game in Hangzhou, the regional capital of Zhejiang. The game was participated by around 50 young athletes and was a part of the 19th Hangzhou City Sports Games.
After the competition, onlookers and journalists flocked around him as they were able to spot Chen-Yi’s muscular body while he was changing to his daily clothes. They took photos of him and posted on social media which earned wows and admiration.
The said competition was the first time Chen-Yi had joined. His mother, Zhang Hongyu said, though it was her son’s first, she was greatly pleased with the results.
According to Chen-Yi’s mother, her son was seen to be strong since birth. He weighed nearly nine pounds and started walking when he reached nine months old. She recalled the time when Chen-Yi turned two, he was able to hold his feeding bottle with one hand and could pull his own body in a horizontal bar with his other hand. She also shared that her son can eat more than a dozen of dumplings in just one sitting.
This muscled young boy underwent extensive training since he was 5 years old when recruited by the local gymnastic school and lives in his school on weekdays and goes home during weekends to be with his family.
