Wife divorces Chinese running man
A man has been divorced by his wife for running across China to support the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Wang Yueting, 56, of Chuzhou city, Anhui province, sold his apartment to finance the run, reports Nanjing Morning News.
He spent the money on a six-man support team and a van, on which he's had painted 'Support Beijing Olympics' in both English and Chinese.
Wang has already completed 4,600 miles despite his wife's promise to divorce him if he went ahead with the stunt.
He said: "The run is to promote the Olympic spirit. If you delete the zero from the whole 20,080 miles I intend to run, it makes the date of the Olympics in Beijing - 2008."
Each day, Wang runs besides the van, and a female employee films Wang as he runs. Other members of the team go ahead on bicycles to arrange his route and accommodation.
