Great Expectations

Liu Xiang, the hurdler who was expected to win a gold medal today,
withdrew from the 110-meter hurdling preliminaries due to injury. Talk
in the Chinese blogsphere ranges from doubting why he "really"
withdrew to sympathy. I refuse to believe he withdrew because of some
selfish reason, he's a natural competitor and wants to win even more
than all of the 13 billion fans combined do! Hope he recovers quickly
and doesn't let the negativity get him down.

omygosh i was so sad! i watched him pull out live and you could just sense the disappointment in the crowd. at the same time, can you imagine being in his shoes? with the hopes and dreams of 1.3 billion peole on your shoulders? i'm shocked he didn't go crazy!
