Zhong Huandi (born 28 June 1967 in Yunnan) is a retired Chinese long-distance runner who concentrated on the 3000 and 10,000 metres, and later the marathon. She became a four-time Asian champion and two-time World Championships silver medalist. On September 8, 1993, she became the second fastest 10,000 meter runner of all time, only surpassed by Wang Junxia, the winner of that same race by more than half a lap in what is still the world record. Both runners surpassed the standing world record by Ingrid Kristiansen.
