China’s Rock-Star Olympian Sports Christian Cross Tattoo to Honor His Grandmother

China’s popular Olympian Lin Dan or “Super Dan” sports many tattoos including a Christian Cross on his left arm.

Nearly five million Chinese Internet users on Monday posted their praise of badminton player Lin Dan after his historic defense of his Olympic gold in London.

Super Dan also has a cross on his left arm. He has never publicly said what it means.

According to Chinese media, his cross tattoo is due to his grandmother being a
Christian. Super Dan says she prays for him before every match and he loves her very much.
