Tan Zongliang (simplified Chinese: 谭宗亮; traditional Chinese: 譚宗亮; pinyin: Tán Zōngliàng; born November 29, 1971) is a male Chinese sports shooter who competed at five consecutive Olympics from 1996 to 2012. He has won two consecutive ISSF World Shooting Championships in 50 metre pistol: in 2002 in Lahti and in 2006 in Zagreb. At the 2008 Summer Olympics, he won the bronze medal in the same event, a medal that was upgraded to silver after Kim Jong-su's disqualification for use of the banned drug, propranolol.[1]
