Chunli Li (born February 28, 1962 in Guiping, Guangxi, People's Republic of China) was a table tennis player for New Zealand. She won a gold, silver and two bronze medals at the 2002 Commonwealth Games to cap off her long career. Her illustrious career began as one of the top table tennis players in China, specialising as a doubles player. Chunli migrated to New Zealand in 1987 and has since represented New Zealand until she retired in 2004 to concentrate as the national coach. She competed at four Olympic Games and one Commonwealth Games for New Zealand. Since 2011, she came out of her "retirement" and started representing New Zealand again. Chunli will lead the New Zealand team at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. [1]
