Liu Xuan energetically walked on stage as the celebrity entertainment for a Mother's Day event at a Hong Kong mall. The 2000 Olympics balance beam champion had traded her tights for a green blazer, blue jeans and white high heels.
"We have seen in the mainland many past champions are not leading good lives," Liu told The Associated Press. "What we can do is show that after athletes retire, they don't just coach or become businessmen or political leaders. There are so many professions in the world. I hope they can blend into society."
She said her gymnastics training came in handy for her role as the feisty wife of a kung fu master in the TVB drama "Grace under Fire," but she had to learn how to manage the strength of her kicks and punches.
