Beijing Review - - THIS WEEK -

China’s star sprinter clocked 9.92 sec­onds to win his first gold medal at the Asian Games in the Men’s 100M fi­nal on Au­gust 26.

Su fin­ished in 9.91 sec­onds in the Men’s 100M race at the Paris leg of the 2018 IAAF Di­a­mond League in June, which tied the Asian record cre­ated by Qatar’s Nige­rian-born Femi Ogun­ode in 2015.

“I’m proud to win hon­ors for my coun­try, but I do hope for more at the 2020 Tokyo Sum­mer Olympic Games,” said Su.

Born in Zhong­shan City, south China’s Guang­dong Prov­ince, in 1989, Su en­tered the semi­fi­nal of the Men’s 100M at the 2012 Lon­don Sum­mer Olympics, be­com­ing the first Chi­nese to run in the Men’s 100M semi­fi­nal at the Olympics. In May last year, Su won the Men’s 100M at the Shang­hai leg of the 2017 IAAF Di­a­mond League, be­com­ing the first Chi­nese cham­pion.
