The musician invites everyone to celebrate Tokyo Olympics 2020
Little known fact about Jackson Wang, the international mogul who has extended his popularity and influence from being a Korean pop star to leading his own recording label and fashion brand, is that sports run deep in his bloodline. His father is a gold medalist in fencing while his mom is a gymnast from Shanghai.
At the young age of 16, Jackson was destined for athletic greatness as he became an Olympic-level saber fencer in Hong Kong. In 2011, while preparing for the 2012 London Olympics, he was offered a sports scholarship from Stanford University.
But he gave all that up to pursue his real passion in life: singing and performing.
Now, in 2021, even as the pandemic still rages all over the world, the Tokyo Games are set to happen in a few days. To rally behind the historic event, the Youth Olympic fencer turned pop star appears on a promo video for the Games. “It feels very special to me, especially as a professional athlete in the past. Thank you and I am honored,” Jackson says. “There is light passed on from generation to generation, illuminating the very best of us. Now matter our differences, the Olympics reminds us of how we are all #StrongerTogether.”
