Zhang Yue (simplified Chinese: 张悦; traditional Chinese: 張悅; pinyin: Zhāng Yuè; born January 27, 1993 in Qiqihar, Heilongjiang) is a Chinese pair skater. With partner Wang Lei, she is the 2009 Junior Grand Prix Final bronze medalist and 2008 Junior Grand Prix Final silver medalist.

Career[edit]

Zhang / Wang teamed up in 2006.[1] They began competing together in the 2007-2008 season. They won two bronze medals on the 2007–2008 ISU Junior Grand Prix circuit and qualified for the 2007 Junior Grand Prix Final. They made their senior Grand Prix debut at the 2007 Cup of China.

Although they placed eighth on the day, they were later moved up a spot to a seventh place finish at the 2007–2008 ISU Junior Grand Prix Final following the retroactive disqualification of first-place-finishers Vera Bazarova / Yuri Larionov due to a positive doping sample from Larionov.

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