China's National Swimming Administrative Centre said Olympic gold medalist diver Tian Liang had been bounced from China's national team and sent to join the Shaanxi provincial diving team in Xi'an for engaging in commercial activities, including signing up as a rep for Hong Kong's Emperor Group. Li Hua, China's diving director, said he had repeatedly warned Tian after he took a six-month leave for fatigue and started picking up commercial gigs not approved by the sports body. Li said Tian had to be stricter with himself. Now people are wondering if Tian can redeem himself in time to rejoin China's diving squad for the Beijing Games.
