The Idol Star Athletics Championships (ISAC) features K-pop idols who compete in multi-sport events. The 2019 ISAC aired over the Chuseok Holiday in September. The championship featured seven different events, which were track and field, archery, ssireum (Korean wrestling), pitching, penalty shootouts, eSports, and horseback riding. Most of the events were held at the Goyang Gymnasium in Gyeonggi Province. A total of 231 idols from 44 different groups participated in the 2019 competition.
IZ*ONE and ITZY were two of the groups participating in the 2019 ISAC. IZ*ONE won a silver medal for the 400-meter relay. Meanwhile, ITZY made the semifinals for ssireum, but were defeated by Cherry Bullet. ITZY’s Yeji won a silver medal for pitching, and she was named as the “Fastball MVP” after she threw a 68 kilometer/hour (approximately 42 miles/hour) pitch.
In this event, fans caught some adorable interaction between IZ*ONE’s Chaeyeon and ITZY’s Chaeryeong. When IZ*ONE entered the venue, Chaeryeong immediately noticed her older sister in the crowd and stood up to watch where she was going. Once IZ*ONE had stopped, Chaeryeong made her way closer to her sister before shyly stopping just outside the group. Chaeyeon noticed Chaeryeong and walked toward her. Then IZ*ONE’s Chaeyeon gave her sister a big hug.
