刘翔宣布退役 再见我的跑道

【相关信息】

奥运史上中国第一块男子田径金牌得主刘翔于4月7日通过个人微博宣布退役。他在微博长文《我的跑道!我的栏!》中写道:“从今天起,我将结束我的职业运动生涯,正式退役。”刘翔透露,退役后他将完成剩余学业,做一些对中国青少年体育发展和提升国人健康体质有利的事,力所能及地推动和促进中国田径在国际舞台的影响力。

刘翔,2004年夺得雅典奥运会冠军;2006年打破世界纪录;2007年获得第一个世锦赛冠军头衔;2008年获得第一个室内世锦赛冠军。因脚伤退出2008年北京奥运会和2012年伦敦奥运会。回顾人生的跌宕起伏,刘翔表示:“一幕幕仿佛就在昨天,就在眼前。现在我就是一个普普通通的凡人,我决定不再挣扎于过去,既然选择了离开,就要坚强面对,我有很多不舍,但我会快乐向前,我有遗憾有无奈,应会心怀感激。”虽然远离了比赛,刘翔却更加接近人生,祝福他在人生道路上依旧精彩。

Liu Xiang announced his retirement officially on his micro blog Tuesday due to his Achilles tendon (跟腱) injury, saying that "I am officially retiring today to say goodbye to my beloved tracks and hurdles. It's a well-considered decision but a hard one to make." Last week, Shanghai newspaper Xinmin News reported that Liu would indeed formally hang up his boots Tuesday. According to China Daily, Liu Xiang's retirement brings to an end an era of outstanding Chinese athletes who demonstrated the country's ability to excel on the world stage.

Liu first made it to the world stage in 2001 by winning the 110-meter hurdles at the East Asian Games and World University Games. His greatest victory came at the 2004 Athens Olympics when Liu easily won the 110-meter hurdles and tied Colin Jackson's 11-year-old world record with a time of 12.91 seconds. He also held the world record in 2006 with a time of 12.88 seconds. He was increasingly plagued by an Achilles injury, which culminated in him pulling up in a false start in a heat (预赛) at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. And he failed to clear the first hurdle in the heats at the London Olympics in 2012.
