Track Beauty of the Week: Zheng Xingjuan 郑幸娟
September 25, 2011Posted by on
Zheng Xingjuan 郑幸娟 is this week’s track beauty!
The high jumper is China’s best bet in the exciting exciting event. The statuesque Zheng has a personal best of 1.95m, 2cm from the standing Chinese national record. The Fujian-born athlete first came to international prominence at the 2006 World Junior Championships, where she won the bronze medal in front of her home fans in Beijing.
Zheng was a standout talent as a youngster, setting an impressive personal best of 1.92m when she was barely sixteen years old in 2005. That same year, she competed at the Helsinki World Championships. Zheng placed 10th in qualifying at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She made up for the disappointment a year later by winning the Asian Championships in Guangzhou.

The Chinese has had an outstanding 2011 season, as she equaled her 2009 best of 1.95m early in the year. More importantly, Zheng qualified for her first ever major championship final in the seniors, as she finished in a hard fought sixth place at the Daegu World Championships.
