Huang Xu (simplified Chinese: 黄旭; traditional Chinese: 黃旭; pinyin: Huáng Xù; born February 4, 1979 in Nantong, Jiangsu) is a Chinese artistic gymnast. He specializes on the pommel horse and the parallel bars and is also strong on still rings.
Huang began gymnastics training when he was five and was a member of the Jiangxu provincial team in 1989. At the age of 14, he was selected into the national team.
During the 2004 Summer Olympics, Huang contributed heavily to the Chinese gymnastics team, a 9.675 on pommel horse, a 9.712 on still rings and a 9.687 on floor exercise. However, several errors and falls of his teammates prevented the Chinese team from getting a team medal. Individually, he placed fourth in the pommel horse event final, with a score of 9.775.
Huang is the 2003 World silver medalist on the parallel bars, and has been a member of four World Champion Chinese teams (1997, 1999, 2003, 2007).
