Chinese ever hero and 2004 Olympic gold medalist Liu Xiang was made fun of by a men’s health hospital, which used his Olympic photo in an ad to promote its treatment for male sexual disorders.
The ad features the star hurdler “sitting on the track looking upset and pained“. The photo was taken from the 2012 London Olympics when he fell at the first hurdle in the 110m hurdles heat.
And the title of the ad in bold type reads, “Fall down right at the start! Premature ejaculation, man's unspeakable pain!”
Apparently, the hospital did not obtain Liu’s approval to use his image.
Liu and his coach Sun now are considering whether to sue the hospital, according to the Yangtze Evening News.
The 2004 Olympic hurdles champion has been troubled by his foot injury since 2008. He pulled out of 2008 Beijing Olympics, and failed to finish a race again at the 2012 London Olympics.

Flight attendant Wang Lin (王淋) is a photography enthusiast know in the photography circle, for documenting the life of her peers in the air and on the ground.
Recently, Wang sued her employer Okay Airline and demanded compensation, as she was suspended from her job for nine months over the claims that her photos leaked on the Internet brought the company into disrepute.
Wang Lin, born in 1973 in Tianjin, became a flight attendant on Hainan Airline in 1992, but she quit in 2003 to study photography at Beijing Academy of Fine Arts. During the period from 2005 to 2010 when she was employed again as a flight attendant on Okay Airline, she undertook her documentary series with consent from her colleagues.
The documentary series show female flight attendants in moments when they were not serving passengers. They were seen resting on board flight or in the dorms after the flight, applying makeups, talking in the phones with families, friends or lovers, sharing their secrets, and with other intimate scenes.
Wang has exhibited the documentary series in a photography festival and won prize.
But it sparked controversy when some anonymous web users turned the photos into a voyeuristic slideshow and spread it online. She was accused of exposing other people’s privacy to the public, and in China, female flight attendants refer to a certain appeal of fantasy to the men.
