Liu Xiang injured in heats

on August 8, 2012

London Olympics – Liu Xiang of China knocked over the first hurdle, injuring his right ankle and inflaming an Achilles tendon injury that ruined his medal ambitions at the 2008 Games. Liu then hopped on his left foot down the remainder of the track in a symbolic completion of the race, pausing to kiss the final hurdle.

Liu also had his hopes smashed at Beiging 2008, when injury denied him the chance to defend his 110m Hurdle title on home soil.

‘I feel really sorry about this situation,’ said Feng Shuyong, the Head Coach of the Chinese Athletics team. ‘We think it was like four years ago, the same thing happened again.

“Liu’s spirit and sportsmanship won praise, not only from Chinese sport officials and millions of Chinese, but also from his foreign friends and opponents,” wrote Xinhua.
