MUSIC MAN
He sang the Chinese national anthem without music at the 2011 Grand Prix in Penza, Russian Federation, after a technical error. Compatriot Zhang Xinhua won the gold medal, but the wrong anthem was played. So silver medallist Li sang the anthem solo, much to the appreciation of the crowd. One Chinese media outlet nicknamed him 'the man who sings the national anthem without music' after the incident. (sports.sohu.com, 18 Jul 2011; sports.enorth.com.cn, 28 Feb 2011)
