China's basketball star Yao Ming and Olympic 110m hurdles champion Liu Xiang have been included in the second edition of the Encyclopedia of China, which will be published this year, sources with the Encyclopedia of China Publishing House said.

Chief editor Liu Hang said there had been a heated debate among the editorial staff about who should be included in the volume.

They agreed to choose "typical personalities with a great influence in their own field and also in history," Liu said.

Director Zhang Yimou and China's first astronaut Yang Liwei have also been included, while Yi Zhongtian, a currently popular TV lecturer and Wang Shuo, a writer whose words and behaviors have recently triggered fierce debate among netizens, have been left out, he said.

The new 60-million-word edition of the encyclopedia draws on a corpus of 32 volumes, 60,000 items, 30,000 pictures and 1,000 maps.

The first large-sized comprehensive encyclopedia in China, the Encyclopedia of China saw its first edition published in 1993.
