SHANGHAI (CHN): China Daily informs that hurdles former world record holder Liu Xiang is targeting his third successive victory at the Asian Games next month, one of his biggest events during a prolonged comeback from an Achilles’ tendon injury. “I want to win at my third Asian Games and add one gold medal for China. I’m in good form recently and I want to get the right feeling back gradually,” Liu was quoted. His coach Sun said he can run between 13.30-13.40. Exactly 13.40 is the best time of the year for Liu in 2010. Only one hurdler achieved faster time this year in Asia, his team-mate Shi Dongpeng 13.39 when he beat him at Shanghai Diamond League meeting.
KINGSTON (JAM): News from Racers TC (Usain Bolt Club) as presented by TrackAlerts. Coach Glen Mills said that because of recent injuries the 2007 200 m world finalist Marvin Anderson might switch to 400 m in 2011. His bests of 2010 were 10.21 and 20.48. Beijing Olympic women 400 m finalist Rosemarie Whyte is battling with a career threatening injury. “In the case of Rosemarie”, Mills said, “you don’t want to put the blame on anyone, but the facts are, she suffered a major injury in 2006. An injury that was partially healed and because she did not receive proper treatment, became chronic over the years.” Mills further said the injury is causing her great pain and discomfort and added “I know she is under great stress, because it’s career threatening.”
