    I hate to sound like a harsh loser, but has anyone else noticed the dramatic increase in performance from the chinese track and field team – it’s got me (and some of the British Commentators i might add) a little suspicious. I know, I know, its horrible to accuse people of drugs related cheating until they’re caught, but I really find it very hard to see how these people are THAT good… so suddently (and I’m not just talking about Liu Xiang, other chinese atheletes have been extra good too).

  3. Matt,

    Too bad you know this is a childish behavior, but you still can’t help being childish. So far there are 15 people disqualified due to doping. Do you see any chinese name?

    lol at matt. Liu didn’t become amazing instantly. He was always amazing, even before the olympics. He broke the junior record at the age of 19 and has won bronze and silver in many other international track meets.

    Why is it whenever an athlete performs well, people straight blame it on drugs. why note enjoy being part of him making history. for those who think he has suddenly became an great athlete, go look at his progression as the years went by. he has done something truely amazing, i know cause i’m a hurdler myself, what he did toke years of blood sweat and tears,

    Well done my man, looking forward to run against u…..

    It’s not unexpected. 110 hurdles is the game requiring more skill than strength.
