SM Office, March 10, 2016: 2014 was Bai Yawen’s first year as a senior gymnast.
At the Chinese National Championships in May, she won the silver on Balance Beam. Later that year, Bai was selected to represent China at the Asian Games in Incheon 2014 where she and her teammates Yao Jinnan, Shang Chunsong, Huang Huidan, Tan Jiaxin, and Chen Siyi won team gold. Bai also competed at the World Championships in Nanning 2014, where the Chinese team won the silver medal behind the United States. Despite individually qualifying to the Balance Beam Final, Bai did not compete in Team Finals. However, she later won the silver medal in the Balance Beam Final behind Simone Biles of the United States and ahead of then-reigning World Champion Aliya Mustafina of Russia.
