Li Jiajun (simplified Chinese: 李佳军; traditional Chinese: 李佳軍; pinyin: Lǐ Jiajūn; born October 15, 1975 in Changchun, Jilin) is a Chinese short track speed skater who has won 5 Olympic medals - two silver and three bronze. He has been a two-time Overall World Champion for 1999 and 2001.
In 1998 Winter Olympics, he led for much of the way during the final race of the 1000m, but was edged out at the finish-line by Korea's Kim Dong-Sung, to win a silver medal. He also won a bronze medal in 5000m relay.
He participated in the 2002 Winter Olympics at Salt Lake City, making the finals of the 1000 meter short course event but failed to win a medal after being disqualified following a collision with Apolo Ohno, which caused Ahn Hyun-Soo and Mathieu Turcotte to also fall and allowed Australian Steve Bradbury to claim the gold medal.
During the opening ceremony of the 2007 Asian Winter Games, Li was given the honour to light the torch. As of August 18, 2006, he has officially retired from short track speedskating. According to Li, he will go to study in Canada later this year and continue his work as the assistant coach for the national team.
