So much consideration and humanity displayed in this story. Olympic Channel is unlike any other on this platform with such rich history and footage archive to draw upon. Epic

I am Chinese and I am grateful for What LIU Xiang brought to Chinese sports, especially in track and fields.
A Li
mans cried in 2008 when he was injured he is a national hero no forgiving needed
Am holding back my tears. You are a hero. 你是英雄,你很棒。❤️

so glad to watch something in a neutral side. Because usually US reporters say Liu Xiang imitated other US athletes movement and that cause his success. Which is untrue, so glad @Olympics you guys say everything in neutral way, and not being arrogant.

No one understand the pressure, those who doubt I recommend to put on his shoes and carry his legacy just for one week and see how you do.

Liu Xiang inspired me to do hurdles in high school, and within the four years I have fallen many times, once during a race, and many times in practices. And my both knees have scars from the edge of the hurdles. I couldn't imagine how much more effort Liu has put in to become an Olympic champion.

4th just out of the medals

As if 2008 was not enough, the last chance for him to compete in the Olympics in 2012 was the same as well..
Anybody else really like the commentator’s voice!?

Liu xiang you are the greatest athlete of 110 hurdle. You are always in my heart

People get old, athletes deteriorate. Doesn't change the fact that he's still a hero to the country by winning its first and ever gold medal in track and field.
Curious Cat
It´s athletes like him that break barriers for their countries and inspire others to follow their steps. I´m sure more chinese athletes will want to follow his footsteps now.

What happened to pole vault as the most technically demanding discipline?
The Secret History
People tend to forget he was young, 21, when he won gold, but 4 years later your bodies will take a toll on you. Bodies aren't built the same 4 years after, especially you will pull a muscle when running super fast and jumping very high. Another reason Olympic althetes usually retired within the next two Olympics. He should be proud for what he did for his country and will forever be in the sport history books. Applause are needed. 👏👏👏

Liu Xiang is the best hurdler in my opinion. Filthy Robles hit him but he still got gold in my view.
Come on China he did win the final race position! I hope they didn't behead Liu Xiang!!!
the dislikes are China
they give him so much pressure.

I remember watching him on TV with my family that night in China. When he bailed out twice that night... everything fell quiet... I could feel the disappointment lurking in the room.
Nathan Sornsovan
Wait so what happened to him

Love you Liu!!!

2004 is before 2008. I don't understand is there a mistake? This is confusing isn't it?
Thanks, Liu Xiang for all you have done us proud.

Seems too much pressure and expectations on one guy

I am a Tibetan dude who aspired to be a hurdler because of Liu. I happen to see his picture in one of the sports magazine when I was a kid( he won gold at athens), read article on him even though I couldn't understand everything that was written but still he caught my attention and admiration. I took hurdle in my tracks but wasn't able to make it through because it is the most demanding track in track and field. Your legs get overstretched and your career is finished.

6’2 is short side for high jump?? Are u crazy

We may never know if it truly was an injury that prevented Liu from competing at the Beijing Olympics. But one thing's for sure, these athletes do feel like the weight of an entire country (if not world) is upon them, when expectations are very high and everyone is looking up to them. And few athletes could handle that sort of pressure! People need to understand this! Sometimes it's better to keep silent and just let the athlete go out to compete. And then, afterwards, you can make all your noises in celebration.
