From the mid 1980s to the early 1990s Tian and his regular partner Li Yongbo won numerous top tier international titles. They were contemporaries and rivals of the famous Korean team of Park Joo-bong and Kim Moon-soo, largely dividing the world's biggest championships between them for about eight seasons. Among many tournaments around the world Tian and Li captured consecutive World Championships in 1987 and 1989, the prestigious All-England Championship in 1987, 1988, and 1991, and five Danish Opens between 1984 and 1991.[1][2] they also played on Chinese Thomas Cup (men's international teams) that won consecutive world team titles in 1986, 1988, and 1990. Late in their partnership they won a bronze medal in men's doubles at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona.

Tian is married to Zhou Jihong, a famous diver and Olympic champion.
