Former Olympic men’s gymnastics champion Chen Yibing announced his transition from athlete to businessman by launching the Go Sports app at the National Aquatics Center or Water Cube.

With the nationwide drive toward entrepreneurship and policies for promoting the development of the sports industry, the app is endorsed by the State General Administration of Sport (SGAS).

Its subsidiary unit, the Occupational Skill Testing and Management Division (OSTA), is focused on nationwide public fitness programs.

Chen explained his venture, enabling online and offline users to access professional fitness guidance, is based on profit pattern, consumers’ position and joint promotion between brands.

Through nearly 1,000 professional coaches identified by SGAS and OSTA, the app provides optimal and standard fitness services. Taking the most specialized services and guidance to students and employee groups, enables them to enjoy a healthy life style, as well as cultivating youth sports fans.

The Go Sports app is cooperating with the 360 mobile assistant, part of Qihoo 360, which has been downloaded by more than 600 million smartphone users.
