Geng Bingwa (Chinese: 耿冰娃; pinyin: Gěng Bīngwá; born January 3, 1994) is a Chinese figure skater. She is the two-time Chinese national silver medalist (2008, 2011) and reached the free skate at five ISU Championships.

Personal life[edit]

Geng was born in Qiqihar, Heilongjiang. Her mother coaches figure skating and father formerly competed in ice hockey.[1] Her name "Bingwa" litearally means "ice baby" in Chinese.[3]

In February 2011, Geng's age became the subject of controversy. Although her ISU bio lists Geng as born on January 3, 1994, a Chinese website suggests she was born on March 3, 1995.[2]

Career[edit]

Geng began skating at the age in 1998.[1] Her international debut came at the 2008 World Junior Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria. Ranked 24th in the short program, she qualified for the free skate (17th) and finished 21st overall. The following season, she made her first and only appearance on the ISU Junior Grand Prix series, placing 8th in Mexico. At the 2008 World Junior Championships, she placed 11th in the short, 21st in the free, and 18th overall.

Making her Grand Prix debut, Geng finished 11th at the 2009 Cup of China. The following season, she placed fifth at the 2010 Cup of China, 13th at the 2011 Four Continents Championships in Taipei, and 18th at the 2011 World Championships in Moscow.

Geng ranked 11th at the 2012 Four Continents in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She withdrew from the 2012 Cup of China after the short program and has made no international appearances since that event.
