China rocked by Liu Xiang disappointment

Newspapers with reports on Chinese star hurdler Liu Xiang crashing out of the 110m hurdles qualifying during the London 2012 Olympic Games are for sale at a newsstand in Beijing, China, 8 August 2012. Chinese sports fans were left reeling on Tuesday (7 August 2012) after former Olympic champion Liu Xiang crashed out of the 110 meters hurdles heats at the London Olympics, a haunting echo of his injury-induced withdrawal in Beijing four years ago. The 2004 Olympic champion and former world record holder hit the first hurdle with his lead leg and tumbled to the ground before being helped from the track with his dream of regaining the title shattered. Chinese quickly took to the Twitter-like microblogging service Sina Weibo to lament Lius failure.
