Fitness and balance

When most people hear of pole dancing, they automatically think of the kind that is performed at night clubs. However, unknown to many, there are different types of pole dancing like the sport and art type. Pole sport and fitness is gaining popularity among Chinese teenagers as a new form of exercise. These girls may be young at age but no doubt, they are serious athletes performing death-defying stunts. Guess it takes lots of strength and passion to display such unimaginable muscular strength. While it is not quite clear how they suspend their weights or propel it around metal poles, seems like performing such antics is their daily cup of tea. (Text and photos by Xinhua)
