VIXX’s Leo Chosen As Torchbearer For 2018 PyeongChang Olympics
Leo is the second VIXX member to be chosen as a torchbearer for the coming 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic Winter Games.
The singer recently revealed the surprising news through his personal Instagram: “I’m saying this only now. I will be running as a torchbearer for 2018 PyeongChang Olympics. I will run hard with Powerade.”
In the picture, Leo is seen gazing intently at a beverage bottle labeled “Powerade” while holding it.
Powerade of Coca-Cola Beverage Co. is an official sponsor of the 2018 Games, who appointed Leo’s groupmate N to bear the PyeongChang Olympic torch last September.
The official torch relay will start on November 1, with a total of 7,500 torchbearers running over 2,018 kilometers across South Korea.
In related news, Leo was previously reported to be temporarily absent from VIXX’s activities from September 20 due to his stomachache treatment.
