Liu Xiang to undergo surgery

Posted in General at 11:24 am by Nicole

China Daily reports that Liu Xiang’s medical team has agreed with the opinions of U.S. doctors who say that the injury that forced the 2004 Olympic champ out of the first round at the Beijing Olympics requires surgery. That’s likely to be done in the U.S. as well – and it makes Liu one of several Chinese sports superstars who have gone the route of making the trip to the United States for sports-related surgery. (Volleyball stars Feng Kun and Zhao Ruirui made the trip to Chicago in early 2007 to receive surgery for sports-related injuries and snagged a bronze medal in Beijing in August, both playing at full strength.)
