Yin Lili (born 11 November 1979) is a female Chinese middle distance runner.

On 18 October 1997 in Shanghai she ran the 1500 metres in 3:53.91 minutes. This ranks her sixth in the world of all time, behind Qu Yunxia, Jiang Bo, Lang Yinglai, Wang Junxia and Tatyana Kazankina.[1]

At the 1998 World Junior Championships she won both the 3000 and the 5000 metres.

Yin never had a distinguished career after this, rarely competing internationally. In 2001 she received a two-year suspension for doping.[2]
