China in shock as injured Liu pulls out Olympics (http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=080818075424.v0sojdfb&show_article=1)

China suffered a huge setback Monday to its hopes of winning gold on the track when superstar Liu Xiang sensationally pulled out of the 110m hurdles, taking the gloss off the hosts' best Olympics ever.

----------

Given the general tone of the judging so far, I expect Liu will receive the silver medal for the 110m hurdles.

Apparently he is bigger than Jesus over in China, they must really be shocked. The coach said "state pressure" on them to get a gold medal played a part in his bad performance.
