Liu Ming was a relative latecomer to the sport at 16 but with natural talent, quickly progressed to the national team.
Ming has competed at world championships in the 470 and the Hobie 16 at the Asian Games.
He was a key member of Dongfeng Race Team for the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race, making his main contribution as part of the shore team. Ming went on to compete in the China Sailing Tour before re-joining Dongfeng as part of the victorious team for the 2017-18 edition of the race.
Off the water, Ming has a passion for basketball, swimming, running and cycling, whether competing himself or watching on TV.
