I Love Nike

Chinese hurdler Liu Xiang had to withdraw from the Olympics due to an injury. Nike printed this ad the next day.

It reads: "Love competition; Love risking your pride; Love winning it back; Love giving it everything you've got; Love the glory; Love the pain; Love sport even when it breaks your heart."
I love Nike. Too bad his own government couldn't show him the same support.


  1. I saw that race.
    I thought he showed tremendous Heart as one could see that he was in an extreme amount of pain. He was actaully trying to "pimp-slap" his tendon into submission. Hooray for the Heart and Sprit.

  2. Situations like this are heartbreaking. He's a hero. Excuse me, but I have to go. I've got something in my eye....

  3. I just find the whole thing bewildering. Apologize? To your country? For having a pulled Achilles Tendon?



Come on, sailor. I love you long time.
