At age 14, she won the beam final in the 11th national games beating olympians including world champion Deng Linlin.

She is a balance beam specialist, scoring as high as 15.550.
She turns senior in 2011, and the Telegraph considers that "she is going to be a raging favourite for the London 2012 Olympic Games ..."
In 2011, she won silver on floor at the Cottbus world cup and gold on beam and bars at the Doha world cup. At the 2011 Chinese National Championships she got gold with her team Shanghai and gold in the All Around. She was named to the 43rd World Championship held in October 2011 and won Bronze metal in team final. But her multiple mistakes in the preliminary competition prevented her from entering the All-around and event finals.
