OK,he retired quite a long time ago.But he will always be one of my favourite athletes of all time.He is the one who light up the major torch in the Opening Ceremony for Beijing
.His name is Li Ning.He was considered one of the best in Gymnastic Competition history and one of the most famous athletes in China.He is most famous for winning 6 medals at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics(the most by a single person that year I believe), including 3 gold medals (in floor exercise, pommel horse, and rings), 2 silver medals, and a bronze medal. In 1982, he won six of the seven gold medals awarded at the Sixth World Cup Gymnastic Competition(which is also a record I suppose ), earning him the title "Prince of gymnastics".
He is now a very successful businessman and owns a brand same as his name which sells footwear and sporting apparel in China.The brand is the most popular in China,kinda like chinese version of Nike & Adidas in some way.
I`m VERY proud of him and will always be a huge fan of his.Although he`s not fit as before,he is still one of my biggest idol.
