She is the 2017 International Cup of Nice silver medalist and the 2018 Chinese national Champion. She has competed in the final segment at six ISU Championships.

Early years[edit]

Li began learning to skate in 2004.[1] She debuted on the ISU Junior Grand Prix series in August 2013, placing 10th in Riga, Latvia.

Li qualified to the final segment in her first appearance at an ISU Championship – the World Junior Championships, held in March in Tallinn, Estonia; she placed 24th in the short program, 20th in the free skate, and 21st overall.

2015–2016 season[edit]

In February 2016, Li placed 12th in her individual event at the Winter Youth Olympic in Hamar, Norway. She won gold in the team event, having competed as a member of Team Desire. The following month, she finished 20th at the 2016 World Junior Championships in Debrecen, Hungary.

2016–2017 season[edit]

Li's senior international debut came in November 2016 at the Cup of China; she finished 10th at her first Grand Prix assignment. She ranked 13th at the 2017 Four Continents Championships in Gangneung, South Korea, and then 11th at the 2017 World Junior Championships in Taipei, Taiwan.
