|BEIJING Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Clearance , Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- Su Bingtian is a little fella on the track, looking especially so when he ran along with the nearly 2-meter tall Usain Bolt over 100 meters in the Beijing world championships.
His achievement, however, towers in the Chinese athletics history when the 26-year-old, standing at 1.72 meters, became the first Chinese man to run in a world championships 100 meters final.
Two nights ago Cheap Nike Air Max Clearance , the capacity national stadium Bird's Nest gave a standing ovation to Su despite his last and ninth finish in the final where Jamaican "Lightening" Bolt defended his title.
The deafening cheers and thunderous applause much resembled the scene in which the country expectantly watched her first male Olympic and world champion on the track, Liu Xiang, walk to the start line in 2008, only to be astonished to see he limp away from the 110m hurdles heat of his home Olympic Games.
Su may be yet to be able to fill in the vacancy left by the Chinese athletics' leading figure who retired early this year. He broke a seemingly unsurmountable barrier in men's sprint events for China just as Liu turned into a great champion in the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, to say the least.
Su admitted that he was very much inspired by Liu's story although he refused to be labeled as "successor".
"Liu proved with his prime time results what the Chinese can achieve," said Su.
"I don't want to be called a 'successor' or some sort Cheap Air Max Thea Clearance , I just want to be myself, but Liu really is my lucky star," he said.
When Su became the first Chinese who has ever dipped under 10 seconds, setting a national record of 9.99 seconds at Eugen Diamond League Eugene on May 30, Liu was watching, less than two weeks after announcing his retirement Cheap Air Max 95 Clearance , and gave Su heartfelt congratulation.
As Su ran side by side with Bolt in the semifinal to nail a final qualification in 9.987 on Sunday, Liu sat as a commentator, happy to see his legacy was carried on, in some ways. Rumor had it that Liu turned off an eight digit offer for a reality show prior to the world championships.
"I have more confidence now and so will many more Chinese young athletes, I think," said Su. "I gained strength from all my predecessors who have inched for the better each generation. I believe Chinese athletes can eventually stand on the podium although it is going to be very Cheap Air Max 90 Clearance , very difficult. But I have faith."
Long and difficult as it may be, the expectation somehow eased China's anxiety for the lack of sporting heroes in a country that had seen internationally renowned basketballer Yao Ming, two-time Grand Slam winner Li Na and then Liu Xiang all bid farewell to their professional careers.
As Yao announced his retirement on July 20, 2011, the New York Times said in a headline report that China "is unprepared to replace him". Then Li Na left to expect her baby in 2014 and Liu hung up his boots in 2015. A golden era for Chinese sports seemed about to end when a new generation of stars sprouted.
Nint Zetao, for one Cheap Air Max Clearance , rose from a just good-looking swimmer to a sporting idol as the 22-year-old navy lieutenant created history by becoming the first Chinese to win the men's 100m freestyle world title.
TORONTO, July 14 (Xinhua) -- Ticket sales for Toronto 2015 Pan American Games have been boosted by the strong performance of the host country, which racked up 64 medals including 25 gold and retained the lead after four days of competition.
Organizers said more than 900,000 tickets have been sold for the multi-sport event taking place in Toronto and surrounding communities. Ticket sales had initially been somewhat of a concern as only about 800,000 of 1.4 million tickets had been sold before the Games officially began last Friday.
But as the event entered its first full week, organizers said nearly 25 Cheap Nike Air Max Thea Womens ,000 tickets were sold on Monday, a record-breaking figure for a single day of sales. Ticket sales are expected to cover about 40 million Canadian dollars of the Games' 2.5 billion budget, with the rest coming from the federal, provincial and local governments.
Saad Rafi, CEO of the Toronto 2015 organizing committee, said they fully expect to sell at least a million tickets before the Games are done. He said walk-up sales -- where spectators purchase their tickets at kiosks rather than online -- have been significant since the Games began.
In competition Cheap Nike Air Max 95 Womens , Tuesday was another strong day for Canada in and on the water. Rowers, paddlers and swimmers led the way as Canada racked up 23 medals on the fourth full day of the Pan Am Games.
Winnipeg's Chantal van Landeghem beat decorated American swimmer Natalie Coughlin to win the gold medal in the women's 100-meter freestyle event. Van Landeghem claimed Canada's first swimming medal of the Games in 53.83 seconds to set a new Pan Am record.
Canada added another gold when Montreal's Audrey Lacroix won the women's 200-meter butterfly in two minutes 7.68 seconds. The women's 4x100m freestyle relay team also won for Canada. After winning the gold in the relay, van Landeghem praised the hometown crowd for their support.
Earlier in the day, in St. Catharines Canada captured three gold medals in the rowing event. Carling Zeeman won the women's single sculls race, finishing more than seven seconds ahead of her closest competitor.
It was also another multi-medal day for Canada's paddlers competing a few kilometers down the highway at the Welland Flatwater Centre. The host country's canoeists and kayakers won five medals Tuesday, including two gold Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Womens , giving them 10 overall in sprint events.
Mark De Jonge captured gold in the K-1 200 meters, and has his sights set on the top of the medal podium at next year's Rio Olympics.
"We were training pretty hard last week and didn't have that taper going into this as much as we would for worlds," de Jonge said. "But you just have to deal with it, the long-term goal is
