GUANGZHOU DISAPPOINTMENT
She thought she had won gold in the K1 200m at the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, People's Republic of China, after crossing the line in first position. However, it was later announced that the race would be rerun because three athletes had not kept to their lanes. She then finished second, 0.035 seconds behind Japan's Shinobu Kitamoto. "I guess this is life. I have become more mature, which will enable me to have a better state of mind at future competitions." (163.com, 26 Jul 2012)
