Li Huirong (Chinese: 李惠荣; pinyin: Lǐ Huìróng, born April 14, 1965) is a retired triple jumper from People's Republic of China, who set the first IAAF-recognized women's triple jump world record of 14.54 metres on August 25, 1990 at a meet in Sapporo, Japan. She claimed the bronze medal in the women's long jump at the 1982 Asian Games in New Delhi, India.

She won the silver medal at the 1991 IAAF World Indoor Championships, held in Seville, Spain, but the new event was a non-championship contest. She was the first ever winner of the triple jump competition at the Summer Universiade in 1991.[1] The following year, she became the first winner of the event at the 1992 IAAF World Cup with a jump of 13.88 m to beat Galina Chistyakova.[2]
