Guangzhou, China - Around 70,000 spectators turned up to watch Liu Xiang win his third Asian Games high hurdles title on the trot at the Guangdong Olympic Stadium on Wednesday (24).
Liu Xiang won in 13.09 seconds, the third fastest man this season behind David Oliver of the USA and Dayron Robles of Cuba.
“I didn’t expect such a good result,” said the 2007 World champion about his timing. He had forecast around 13.20s after winning his heat the other day.
“I haven’t thought that I could win the Asian Games for a third time with such a good performance. I won easily, I am very happy,” he said.
