Bai Yawen (Chinese: 白雅雯; pinyin: Bái Yǎwén; born September 9 in Nanning, Guangxi) is a retired elite Chinese gymnast. She was a member of the gold medal-winning team at the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, and the silver medal-winning team at the 2014 World Championships in her hometown of Nanning. She also picked up an individual silver medal on balance beam in the latter competition.



Bai spent her junior career very much under the radar. She burst onto the elite scene in her senior debut at the Chinese National Championships, where she won silver on beam, and placed seventh on floor and tenth in the all-around. She was named to the Chinese team for the Asian Games and World Championships. At the Asian Games, she contributed to the team's gold medal finish, but did not have the best day in balance beam finals and finished seventh.

At the World Championships, Bai contributed well to the Chinese qualifying in second to the team final, and additionally qualified for the balance beam final. The Chinese delegation opted not to use her at all in the team final, but she still received a medal when the Chinese took silver. She took another silver in the beam final, behind USA's Simone Biles and ahead of Russia's Aliya Mustafina.


In February, she competed at the WOGA Classic, placing eighth in the all-around and on beam and ninth on bars. In June, she placed eighth in the all-around and ninth with her team at the Chinese National Championships.


Bai started off the 2016 season at the Doha World Cup, placing fourth on balance beam. The following year, she competed at the Chinese National Championships in May, placing twelfth with her team. She announced her retirement at the Chinese National Games.[1]
