Asian Records Set at Chinese City Games
November 18, 2007
Asian Records Chinese City Games, 2 Nov 2007 Wuhan, CHN

Liu Nian of Shenyang set new Asian continent records, open and junior, at the sixth Chinese City Games as she won the 3000m steeplechase in 9:26.25. That time is also a new Chinese national record and Olympic A qualifier. It was a great improvement over her fifth-place 10:41.59 in the Chinese Junior National Champs on June 4 at Chengdu.

The previous Chinese best was 9:32.35 by Li Zhenzhu at Suzhou on June 10 in the Chinese trials for World Champ- ionships where Zhu Yanmei was second in 9:32.36. Both were well under the 9:46 Olympic A qualifier time. China now has three good qualifiers for the Beijing Olympics.
