TEEN TOP‘s Niel has broken SHINee member Minho‘s high jump record.
SHINee’s Minho who has been dubbed the ultimate athlete amongst his idol peers has previously set a new record by jumping 1.73 meters (5’8.1″) during the Men’s High Jump round of MBC‘s third annual ‘Idol Star Athletic Championships‘.
However, the members of TEEN TOP set out to try and break his record on a recent episode of SBS MTV‘s ‘War On Issues‘. Members Niel and Ricky both jumped 1.65 meters (5’5″) and 1.6 meters (5’3″) respectively at the 4th annual ‘Idol Star Athletic Championships’ and won the gold and silver medals.
The boys were eager to try and break Minho’s record, Niel reportedly even practiced high jumps at home, determined to become an ‘athletic idol’ just like Minho.
Though there was a lot of concern as to whether or not he could actually surpass Minho, Niel shocked everyone by effortlessly jumping an impressive 1.74 meters (5’8.5″), setting a brand new record.
