Liu has been running very well this year and leads the 110m hurdles standings for the Diamond League and will look to get one last solid race in ahead of the Olympics. This will more than likely be the final Games for the Chinese sporting hero, but Liu, is downplaying any pressure he may be feeling.

Liu Xiang, 110m hurdler, said, "The most important thing is that I adjust myself, and show my best form in the competition. So I’ll take things easy and relaxed, and just get ready. I don’t have any other thoughts, except for a happy mind. I hope people around me are also happy. As for the competition, I’ll try my best, but won’t put too much hope on the final result."
