He Kexin’s Teary Final Performance

She’s known as the princess of uneven bars; Olympic champion He Kexin ended her gymnastics career with a mistake in the uneven bars final.

After her performance, Kexin waved to the audience and kiss the uneven bars in tears; but this time they are not the tears of mistakes, but tears of having to bid farewell to the sport that she loves.

Post competition, Kexin told reporters that she was nervous about her farewell performance and wanted to do exceptionally well. And despite the results, the whole experience was very precious to her. Even though she is a little reluctant to leave gymnastics, Kexin will go on to college and start a new chapter in her life.

Dear Kexin, we wish you the very best in life.
