But something is not clear: why here http://en.beijing2008.cn/77/68/column211716877.shtml (Olympic Sports page) and here http://en.beijing2008.cn/71/67/column211716771.shtml (Olympic Competition Schedule) doesn’t wushu appear?! 
 
 
At the 80% I will not partecipate at the 9th World Championship cause of some problems that I’ve already talked about, so this means that I will not partecipate in Beijing 2008 too..Hm! I’ve nothing to say about it… just sometimes life is stupid!  
But anyway, I will be there watching you, my friends, competing!
