    what a sad way to go.

    and what spirit to finish the length even with one functional leg. *respect*

    Tough luck for Liu Xiang - that's two Olympics in a row that he had to exit early .... In his heat, 2 others didn't manage to finish the race, I think one of them on Liu's right, was startled when Liu went down hard, he just stopped running.

    Both LCW and Liu Xiang suffered injury. Both couldn't win because of injury and huge pressure.

    LD is truly remarkable. Despite many years of pressure, he didn't suffer any major injury or strain. He is still able to produce the best results in all major events, ie, OLY, WC, AG and Thomas/Sudirman. He is simply the best Chinese athlete ever.

    So unfortunate for Liu Xiang, failed in two OG, Beijing & London. Too bad we can't see his action once again...He's so phenomenal in Athens 2004.
