Adjust font size:

Chinese hurdler and superstar Liu Xiang has no plan to retire and may participate in the 2012 Olympic Games in London, his coach Sun Haiping said.

Liu is preparing for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and is in good conditions. He has the potential to break world record next year if weather, wind and other conditions permit, said Sun, who is in Beijing attending the 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) as a delegate, on the sidelines of the congress.

Liu, world record holder of the men's 110m hurdles at 12.88, became a hero and youth idol in China after he won the first Olympic track and field gold for the Chinese male athletes in the 2004 Athens Games.

Liu is 29 years old when the London Olympic Games comes.

While delivering a political report at the opening of the CPC national congress, Hu Jintao appealed for the success of the 2008 Olympic Games.
