Yao Ming may or may not be out for the count, but Shanghai sports lovers can still count on Liu Xiang to possibly bring them sports glory. The 26-year-old hurdler was in top form during an open training class at Shanghai’s Xinzhuang Training Base, according to China Daily. Because of his Achilles tendon injury – the one that made all of China wail during the Beijing Olympics – he could still only train with sneakers, rather than spikes. But Liu Xiang put on a brave face, even ripping his shirt off and running aorund topless near the end of the session. That’s all well and good, but our PC radar perked up at one of the reactions China Daily recorded from one of his foreign fans. French student Juliette Borque told the paper, “He is the first Chinese to win the Olympic gold medal (in the event). I thought it’s interesting, since normally it is always black guys that win. So I started to follow him.” Beepbeepbeepbeepbeep?
