Gymnastics fans accustomed to Li Xiaopeng's gold-medal performances on the mats can catch the retired Chinese star trying his hand at something new — singing and dancing at his recent wedding.

Li and his new bride have shared a wedding video online, which features the pair singing to Michael Bublé's hit "Just Haven't Met You Yet" at their recent nuptials. The video also includes some gymnastics, with the tuxedo-clad Li throwing a side aerial and groomsman Yang Wei cranking flairs on the dance floor.

Li, the four-time Olympic champion and eight-time world champion, wed former gymnast Anqi "Angel" Li June 3 in Newport Coast, Calif. Angel is the American-born daughter of Chinese Olympians Li Xiaoping, the 1981 world pommel horse champion, and Jia Wen. The newlyweds then traveled to Beijing for a second wedding party on July 11.

The pair met at the 2003 Worlds in Anaheim, where Li Xiaoping served as a host and interpreter for the Chinese teams. Li Xiaopeng was smitten with the teenage beauty, and the two stayed in contact.

The unique music video appears on wedding website StyleMePretty.com, where Angel explains the concept was suggested by their wedding planner and videographer.

"Xiaopeng was very nervous to sing the song, even though he's performed in front of millions at the Olympics," the bride said. "Turns out he is a natural in front of the camera. We did five takes throughout the wedding day and it turned out wonderfully! Our guests were soooo surprised. We're so happy and we love the video! We showed it at our China reception, and our guests there were equally impressed because it was so unique and fun."

Li is studying English and coaching at his in-laws' gym, South Coast Gymnastics, in Irvine, Calif.

Continued Angel, "I'm the luckiest girl in the whole world. I married the greatest guy and had the BEST wedding."
