Xie Zhong (Chinese: 解众; born September 19, 1998) is a Chinese pair skater. With his skating partner, Gao Yumeng, he is the 2017 World Junior bronze medalist and 2017 Chinese national bronze medalist on the senior level.

Early career

Xie began learning to skate in 2003.[1] Following a partnership with Wang Wen, he teamed up with Zhang Mingyang. The two competed on the 2013 Junior Grand Prix (JGP) series, placing fourth in August in Riga, Latvia.

Xie placed fifth skating with Zhang Ziyi at the Chinese Championships in December 2014.

2015–2016 season

During the 2015–2016 season, Xie skated in partnership with Zhao Ying. They appeared at two 2015 JGP events, placing 8th in August in Riga, Latvia, and 7th the following month in Linz, Austria. Competing on the senior level, the pair won the bronze medal at the Chinese Championships in December. They placed 5th at the 2016 Winter Youth Olympics, held in February in Hamar, Norway.

Zhao/Xie were assigned to the 2016 World Junior Championships but withdrew a couple of weeks before the start of the event.[2] The pair was coached by Luan Bo, Song Lun, and Li Yanwei in Harbin, China.[3]

Xie and Gao Yumeng are coached by Zhao Hongbo in Beijing.[1]

Making their international debut as a pair, Gao/Xie placed 5th at a Junior Grand Prix (JGP) event in early September 2016 in Ostrava, Czech Republic. They had the same result at their second JGP assignment, in Saransk, Russia. In December, they won the bronze medal competing as seniors at the Chinese Championships.

In March 2017, Gao/Xie won the bronze medal at the World Junior Championships in Taipei, having ranked second in the short program and third in the free skate.
