Wang Lei (born July 11, 1988 in Harbin, Heilongjiang) is a Chinese pair skater. With partner Zhang Yue, he is the 2009 Junior Grand Prix Final bronze medalist and 2008 Junior Grand Prix Final silver medalist.

Career[edit]

Wang was originally a single skater and competed internationally on the junior level. His highest international placement was two 7th place finishes at Junior Grand Prix events.

Zhang / Wang teamed up in 2006.[1] They began competing together in the 2007–08 season. They won two bronze medals on the 2007–08 ISU Junior Grand Prix circuit and qualified for the Junior Grand Prix Final. They made their senior Grand Prix debut at the 2007 Cup of China. They placed eighth at the Grand Prix Final, but following the retroactive disqualification of first-place-finishers Vera Bazarova / Yuri Larionov due to a positive doping sample from Larionov, moved up to seventh place.

They finished their season at the 2008 World Junior Championships where they helped China earn three pairs spots to the 2009 event.
