Chinese star Liu Xiang hops out of the Games
Liu Xiang is out of the London Games — and he had to leave on one foot.
The 2004 Olympic champion crashed on the first hurdle of his 100-meter heat. He grabbed his lower right leg and hopped toward the closest exit. Officials, however, directed him to the other end of Olympic Stadium. Liu then hopped the entire stretch of the track on his left foot, even pausing near the end for a break.
