Ji Xinpeng is the first Chinese badminton player to win an Olympic gold medal in men's singles. Having never previously captured a top-tier event on the international circuit, he surprised the field at the 2000 Games in Sydney by defeating players such as Taufik Hidayat, Peter Gade and, in the final, Hendrawan. Ji won men's singles at the Japan Open later that year.
Ji became a coach in the Chinese national badminton team in 2008.
