Hsu Shu-ching (Chinese: 許淑淨; pinyin: Xǔ Shú Jìng; born 9 May 1991) is a Taiwanese weightlifter. She won a gold medal in the Women's 53 kg at the 2016 Summer Olympics. She also won a gold medal in the same event at the 2012 London Olympics, after the original gold medalist, Zulfiya Chinshanlo failed a doping retest. At the 2014 Asian Games, she set a world record in the same event, with a lift of 233 kg. Hsu announced her decision to retire from competition in June 2018, citing injuries sustained in the 2017 World Weightlifting Championships.
