Dong Fangxiao (Chinese: 董芳霄; Dǒng Fāngxiāo) is a retired Chinese gymnast. She now lives in New Zealand with her husband. She competed at the 1999 World Championships and 2000 Summer Olympics. She originally won a bronze medal with the Chinese team in both competitions, however following an investigation, the International Gymnastics Federation ruled that she was under the required age to compete when she competed in Sydney. Her scores were canceled and the International Olympic Committee stripped the Chinese team of their medals in April 2010. The World bronze medal was awarded to Ukraine and the Olympic bronze medal was awarded to the USA.
