Li Ling (Chinese: 李玲; pinyin: Lǐ Líng; born 7 February 1985) is a Chinese shot putter. Her personal best throw is 19.95 metres, set in Wiesbaden.

She initially finished fifth in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, but was retroactively ranked fourth after the winner, Nadzeya Ostapchuk, was disqualified for failing a drug test.[1] On 20 August 2016, the IOC announced Yevgeniya Kolodko, the Russian silver medalist of women's shot put at 2012 Summer Olympic Games, failed anti-doping test. Li therefore received the Bronze medal.[2]
