"The torch relay makes my Paralympic dream come true ," said Wen Qing, who was crowned as "wheelchair princess", also the last torchbearer in Beijing Paralympic Torch Relay Wuhan leg on Sunday.

As the forerunner of Chinese wheelchair racing sport, the 42-year-old Wen has won more than 50 medals in the worldwide games for handicapped in past 15 years. Until now, she has still held many records on wheelchair racing in Asia.

When Wen was one year old, she fell off the bed and broke her left leg. Later She became a worker in printing plant of Wuhan Iron and Steel Company, and began her glorious sports career from 1989.

Nevertheless, it is a regret for her not getting a medal in Paralympic Games. "When hearing that I was selected to be the Paralympic torchbearer, I was so excited and could not sleep overnight," she said.

Besides, her student Liu Wenjun who has won many golds of international weelchair marathon games, will also compete in four events of the Beijing Paralympic Games.

"I sincerely hope the sacred flame can illuminate her coming path and help her gain good results during the games," Wen said.
