ATHLETICS - Liu Xiang is 29 years old today. The frontrunner of Chinese athletics will again be among the favourites for the Men’s 100m Hurdles in London, much as he was at the start of the 2008 Beijing Games. Then the darling of the local fans, he withdrew injured just days before the race. In London, he will look for an encore to his 2004 Athens gold medal winning campaign.
Shares birthday with: Erno Rubik, Harrison Ford, Cameron Crowe
