Hurdler Goes Out On A Limb
How much are your legs worth? Chinese Olympic hurdler Liu Xiang's legs have been insured for $13.3 million in the run-up to next year's Beijing Olympics. To him, though, the limbs are beyond valuation. "You can't really put a concrete figure on this. They're priceless," Liu said. He won the 110-metre hurdles at the 2004 Athens Olympics and his race at the Beijing Games is expected to be one of the most watched events at the Games.
