Let's hug Liu xiang


I have been watching Beijing Olympic game since 08-08-2008. I really enjoy it as I can see so many outstanding performances daily. I also read newspaper to keep track all Olympic events every day. That's why I have less time to visit your, sorry for that.
Life is unpredictable even for athletes. Do you know how much efforts they have put in behind scene? They went through a lot of tough training from young. With the strong will power, they had cleared so many obstacles. It is really a nice thing to compete with others in Beijing Olympic to achieve their goal, the best one will get the gold, silver or bronze medal.
The journey is not easy for athletes, some of them were injured during the training session or in the race, Liu xiang is one of the examples.
I felt sad for Liu xiang's withdrawal from the heats for the 100m hurdles[ Beijing Olympic ] due to unbearable pain on his legs. After the incident, I saw two types of comments from fans, some encouraged him to try again next time, some laughed at him by voicing out their anger.
Liu xiang made comments during his interview on Television. He said: " I knew I couldn't make it when I was warming up and I couldn't even jog, I feel very sorry. But there's really nothing I could do. If I had finished the race, I would have risked my tendon. I could not describe my feeling at that moment. I never quit easily. I am not that type of person. " He also wrote something on his blog site. Liu wrote: " Please believe me that the hurt and sadness in my heart cannot be less than yours. At the same time, please believe I am the same Liu xiang as before."
Liu xiang will run again after the recovery, let's hug him .We should hug him even he fell. I salute him for his fighting spirit and he had made the history in year2004- the first Asian who got the gold medal in track and field in Olympic game.

Oh, this is a sad story. Of course he is not a quitter, because if he is, he would not be able to win before and still be joining until now, right?

Hi cooling star, I am back from long absense with new domain.. but I also made my old blog come back to life, http://ilovephilippinestoo.blogspot.com

My new two blogs have custom domains http://www.webbiestuffs.com and http://www.webloglearner.com

I am proposing an exchange link as well to my two new blogs. If that is okay with you. ^^

You are a very understanding person...despite the disappointments of others, you tried to see the explanation first and what it is really... I salute you for that.

Wanderer... said...

At least he has had the gold. Let's hope for the best for the upcoming events then.

bluecrystaldude said...

Anything could happen in last minutes. Sigh. I am feeling pity for him. And he is the one who suffer the worst right? After months of training and then when the day finally comes, he cannot run his best. I hope he will recover fast :)

Olympic delegates are like heroes. Win or lose, they give inspiration to people.

coolingstar9 said...

Allure,
They have fighting spirit like what you say, Olympic delegates are like heroes. Win or lose, they give inspiration to people.
I also inspired by them. Surely you also feel the same.
Let's learn from them, create " the fire " on our heart. Life is so great.
Allure, have a beautiful life, best wishes from coolingstar9

Irtiza said...

he had to do it....


i missed the whole olympic and now its almost over....*sad

Ingrid said...

Yes your wish came true.

And I must say that I feel really sorry for the athlete. And the people who were just voicing their anger and saying mean comments about him not racing, are.. plain stupid, ignorant and .. well stupid hehe ..

But you keep on blogging :)

Take care..
Ingrid

Liu Xiang gets double hugs from me^_^
努力加油!!!

HEALTH NUT WANNABEE MOM said...

I think that he is a winner for taking care of himself. Those athletes train and train and need to be commended for that regardless if they take home a medal or not.

schmopper said...

yes liu xiang deserves a big hug.
i only hope he can bounce back better than ever!

eastcoastlife said...

I feel sorry for Liu Xiang. Injured and not being able to compete is bad enough and he gets scolded by his countrymen for not giving up. Gosh.

Dori said...

I also want to give a hug to Liu Xiang. It was so hard to see him have to withdraw. My heart just went out to him. I just wish him all the very best as he goes forward and runs onward again.

Bernie said...

I have seen the moment when his about to run. I could see the terrible pain it is on his face, and he trully try his best to participate the competition,but nothing he could do to fight the pain on his leg.

coolingstar9 said...

Irtiza,
I believe he will participate again after recovery.
You missed the whole olympic and now its almost over....*sad
Do not worry, I believe you still can watch some highlight on Tv these few days.
Take care always.

coolingstar9 said...

Ingrid,

coolingstar9 said...

speak in doodles,
Wow, you want to give Liu Xiang gets double hugs.
Of course Liu xiang will feel very happy to see your encouraging words in Chinese " 努力加油!!!" besides hugs from you.
Thanks, have a wonderful week.

coolingstar9 said...

HEALTH NUT WANNABEE MOM,
Yes, Liu xiang is a winner for taking care of himself. If he just want to create " glory " by forcing himself. Then he will be forever out of the future competition.
You have the right attitude like you say: Those athletes train and train and need to be commended for that regardless if they take home a medal or not.
We can also learn from them-their fighting spirit.
Take care always.

coolingstar9 said...

schmopper,
I agree with you that liu xiang deserves a big hug.
Schmopper, do not worry, Liu xiang can bounce back better than ever! He will participate the competition more likely next year.
Have a wonderful week.

coolingstar9 said...

You feel sorry for Liu Xiang. Injured and not being able to compete is bad enough and he gets scolded by his countrymen for giving up.

coolingstar9 said...

Dori,
Wow, so many people want to hug Liu xiang, you are one of them.
You say: "It was so hard to see him have to withdraw. My heart just went out to him."
Let's together wish him all the very best as he goes forward and runs onward again.
Dori,take care always, best wishes from coolingstar9

I fully understand the situation, let's hug him.
Bernie , take care always.

AngelBaby said...

It is really sad when someone is trying to take care of themselves in the right way and people criticize them for it. Had he run the ran maybe he would never be able to race again. That would be really sad. I think we should commend him for being brave enough to say no.

Love and Blessings,
AngelBaby

iWalk said...

You are quite right!
We should give him encourage at this moment. I never doubt he want win.

Doreen said...

I missed out on this one, but he is one good athlete who has done his best for his nation. Hats off to him and of course a big hug too!

Toni said...

Joy said...

Thanks for visiting my page colingstar..I love watching Olympics too especially the synchronize swimming and the gymnastics. I cheer for Aussies since I'm living here. Too bad no more Pinoy left.

Silver Canyons said...

Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog. It really lifted my spirits!
I too felt very sad for Liu xiang, but he had such remarkable courage for even attempted to run, with such pain..not only his tendon but of his heartache.
I am wishing him a speedy recovery!

TrishaRitchieNC said...

Life is more about how we recover from failures, than how we succeed. Wishing him well - and you, too. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog!

Thank you for visiting my blog and leave the kind comment.

sho said...

he is truly one contemporary hero everyone, young and old, can look up to in these very challenging times. Thx for the writeup on this amazing athelete.

Our Love Story said...

for me, liu xiang just made the right decision of not putting his health to compromise! not because he chose his health first would mean that he's a quitter...of course not! it's just a matter of setting priorities... and health should come first above honor!

i missed you in my site... hehehe! take care!

bluedreamer27 said...

Toni said...

I felt so sad for him as he had to leave the track. You could see the pain when he was making the attempt. It showed how much this meant to him. It amazes me that people would show anger to someone who worked so hard!

coolingstar9 said...

AngelBaby,
You are an understanding person. You say: " Had he run the ran maybe he would never be able to race again. That would be really sad. I think we should commend him for being brave enough to say no."
I agree, It is something like this, When a machine down, we need to switch off for repair, prevent it from further damage.
Have a nice day.

iWalk,

Take care always.

He had inspired Asian people to do their best, turn impossible to possible.
In flat, We can learn from atheletes regardless of nationality, race, religion.
Take good care.
