Yao Jinnan is a gymnast competing at the 2012 London Summer Olympics for China. She is the 2011 world all-around bronze medalist and the 2011 world balance beam silver medalist.

Yao Jinnan turned heads in her world championship debut in 2011. She nearly won the world all-around title, but an uncharacteristic fall off balance beam and Yao finished third behind champion Jordyn Wieber of the U.S. and Viktoria Komova of Russia in second. Yao finished less than eight-tenths of a point behind gold medalist Wieber – a fall is a one-point deduction. While gymnastics is a sport of 'what if's' – Yao's performance certainly made the world take notice. She left Tokyo Worlds with the all-around bronze, a team bronze, and won a silver medal on balance beam, finishing behind her teammate Sui Lu.

A recent broadcast on Chinese television showed video of Yao receiving therapy on her left shoulder from an American physio.

She has a twin sister who started gymnastics with her, but did not continue to the elite level.
