Nice jump…not sure about the celebration

World of Sport

Chinese high jumper Guowei Zhang cleared 2.29m at the World Championships in Moscow to qualify for the final - and was clearly happy with himself.

After successfully making his jump, Zhang proceeded to channel his inner Napoleon Dynamite by doing a rubbish little dance and, even worse, tiny somersault, before more terrible dancing - then he topped it all by taking off his shirt.

The 22-year-old is not exactly chiselled like Ryan Gosling, but seemed more than happy to show off "his guns" to the Russian public.

It wasn't even a personal best for Zhang – he has jumped 2.31m in the past – so WoS is looking forward to seeing what he comes up with in the final, should he better that mark.

Or, God forbid, if he goes on to win a medal!
