CHINESE hurdling favourite Liu Xiang hops down the track after falling in the first round of the men's 110m hurdles yesterday. The athlete, who also struggled with fitness during the 2008 Beijing Games, insisted on completing the course, stopping only to kiss the final hurdle. He was taken off the track in a wheelchair, applauded by the 80,000-strong crowd.
