Peng Cheng (Chinese: 彭程; pinyin: Péng Chéng; April 23, 1997) is a Chinese pair skater. With former partner Zhang Hao, she competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Career[edit]

Early in her career, Peng competed with Zhang Tianci.

Partnership with Zhang Hao[edit]

Her partnership with Zhang Hao was announced in May 2012.[1][2] The pair made their international debut at the 2012 Cup of China. They placed 11th at their first World Championships.

In the 2013–14 season, Peng/Zhang won their first Grand Prix medals, bronze at the 2013 Cup of China and silver at the 2013 NHK Trophy, and qualified for the Grand Prix Final, where they came in fourth. They were selected for the 2014 Winter Olympics and finished eighth in Sochi. Ending their season, they placed fifth at the 2014 World Championships in Saitama.

For the 2014-2015 Grand Prix season, Peng/Zhang were assigned to Skate America and Cup of China,[3] where they placed 3rd and 1st, respectively, qualifying for the 2015 Grand Prix Final. They finished 4th at that competition after placing 5th in the short program and 3rd in the free skate. They won the silver medal at the 2015 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships. At the 2015 World Figure Skating Championships, they earned personal best scores in the free skate and combined total to finish in 4th place overall.

Partnership with Jin Yang[edit]

On April 14, 2016, International Figure Skating magazine broke the news of Peng's new partnership with Jin Yang. The Chinese Skating Association decided to switch partners between the two pairs of Peng/Zhang and Yu/Jin.[4][5]
