Xiang Liu vs. Terrence Trammell


This could be one of the show-pieces of Beijing 2008.

Liu and Trammell

Very different people, as one can anticipate…

Liu recognizes pressure but denies its effect. He has gone so far as to say, “I don’t have set goals before competitions. My coaches probably have goals for me, but I’m just responsible for resting well, practicing well, and doing well in races.”

Trammell’s take on high-pressure situations is: “Ultimately, that’s where legends are made. I feed off it.”

With one talking of resting and practising, and the other about being a legend. And both, mind you, and talking sense in their own way.

And great athletes both. It will be fun at Beijing.
