He competed for the national team at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the Men's artistic team all-around and helped win the team gold medal.

World Championships and Asian Games[edit]

At both the 2010 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, in Rotterdam, and 2010 Asian Games, in Guangzhou, Zhang won gold with the Chinese Team, and was able to also win gold at the Horizontal bar, in both International events, and gold at the Floor exercise, in the latter, as Zou Kai, the Olympic and World Champion in these events was left out of the team that year.

At the 2011 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, in Tokyo, he again won gold in the Team competition, but could't retain his title on the Horizontal Bar, finishing second in the final, only to Zou Kai, who recaptured his title in that event. He also tied for second on Parallel Bars.

Summer Olympics[edit]

At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Zhang helped the Chinese team win the gold medal in the Men's artistic team all-around. He also competed in event finals of Horizontal Bar and Parallel bars but finished off the podium in both events.
