Sang Lan should light the torch in Beijing

Former gymnast Sang Lan became a real celebrity in China, hosting her own show, Sang Lan Olympics 2008. She’s been signed as host for a new talk show.

Sang was an ambassador for Beijing’s successful 2008 Olympics bid and has been selected as an Olympic relay torchbearer. She’s smart, competent and very ambitious.

I’m hoping she is one of those who light the torch. That would be great.

… Sang has been bound to a wheelchair ever since she suffered severe spinal injuries during the Goodwill Games in New York in 1998. She has never given up her desire to remain active: in 2003, she became a TV sport anchorwoman owing to her being a student of journalism at Peking University; recently she was awarded the title of “accessibility ambassador.”
