Athlete Sang Lan Promotes Olympics in US

Ten years ago, at the Goodwill Games in New York, the Chinese national women's gymnastic team member, Sang Lan, suffered severe spinal injuries. She has been wheelchair-bound since her accident. But now Sang Lan is back in the US as an ambassador for the Beijing Olympic Games and Paralympics.

Sang Lan said, "Promoting the Olympics and taking part in such charity events feel just like being in the games and winning the gold medal myself."

Sang Lan says the trip is also an opportunity to show her appreciation to the friendly American people who supported her after her injury and during her rehabilitation in New York. Despite her disability, Sang Lan has always been determined not to allow herself to despair.

She has expressed an interest in returning to competitive sports and she hopes to represent China as a ping-pong player at the upcoming Paralympic Games.
