Liu Xiang embodies the true Olympic spirit, China's athletics team leader Feng Shuyong said after Liu fell at the first hurdle in the men's 110m hurdles heat at the Olympic Stadium on Tuesday.

On Liu Xiang's feelings after getting another injury at the Olympic Games four years after he withdrew from Beijing 2008, Feng said at a press conference, "We've all seen how hard it is for him. It is such a pity but his spirit is there."

"It is the true Olympic spirit, winning is not so important, participation is what matters," Feng said.
