Born in Inner Mongolia, Guo started cycling at the age of 13, and established her status by beating veteran Jiang Yonghua, the Athens silver medalist to win the crown in the 2005 Chinese National Games.

China named 639 athletes to contest 38 disciplines of all 28 sports for the Beijing Olympics in a low-profile ceremony last Friday.

Those uprising stars among the Chinese delegation attracted much attention as they are also medalist hopefuls in this Olympics.
