Beijing, Jan 9 (IANS) Retired Olympic champion Liu Xiang made public his new relationship here on Saturday, six months after his divorce. The former 110 metres hurdles World and Olympic champion showed a picture of two hands enlaced by a red thread in little fingers, which means two people are in love in Chinese culture, on his Sina Weibo ( the Chinese equivalent of Twitter). 

He also referred it to Wu Sha, a pole vaulter who is believed to be his date, reports Xinhua. Wu, 30, won the pole vault title at Asian Athletics Championships in 2003 and 2009 National Games in 2009. Liu, who won the 110m hurdles at the 2004 Athens Olympics and retired in 2014, ended a nine-month marriage to actress Ge Tian last June.
