Track Queen Back

BEIJING () -- Chinese long-distance track queen Wang Junxia, who has been considering retirement, has been shamed back into training by China's dismal showing at the World Athletics Championships in Athens.


Wang, the reigning 5,000-meter Olympic champion and 10,000-meter record holder, resumed training two weeks ago, state media said Thursday.


Wang stopped training after her victory in Atlanta, complaining of crippling headaches and pressure overload.
