Han Cong (simplified Chinese: 韩聪; traditional Chinese: 韓聰; pinyin: Hán Cōng; born August 6, 1992 in Harbin, Heilongjiang) is a Chinese pair skater. With partner Sui Wenjing, he is the 2010 World Junior champion, the 2009 Junior Grand Prix Final champion and the 2010 Chinese national champion.
Sui/Han teamed up in 2007 without having previous pair skating experience. They both were inspired by 2010 Olympic Champions Shen Xue & Hongbo Zhao and started skating after watching them competing in the 2002 Winter Olympics.
They made their international debut in the 2009–2010 ISU Junior Grand Prix, where they placed 1st at their events. In the ISU Junior Grand Prix Final they placed 1st. They won the Chinese Figure Skating Championships and earned a trip to the 2010 World Junior Figure Skating Championships, where they placed 1st. They became the second Chinese pair winning the World Junior Figure Skating Championships after Zhang Dan & Zhang Hao who won the title in 2001 and 2003.
In the 2010–2011 season, they won their first medal in the senior Grand Prix series, a silver medal at the 2010 Cup of China. At their second Grand Prix event, 2010 Skate America, they won a bronze medal. At the 2010-2011 Grand Prix Final in December 2010, Sui/Han scored 61.49 in the short program, setting a new personal best and a personal best of 117.55 points in the free skate to win a bronze medal with 179.04 overall.
In February 2011, Han's and his partner's ages became the subject of controversy. Although his ISU bio lists Han as born on August 6, 1992, a Chinese website suggests he was born in March 1989. This would mean that during the 2010–11 season he is too old for junior events. His partner's age also came under scrutiny. Her ISU bio states that she was born on July 18, 1995 but the Chinese website suggests she was born on May 7, 1997, making her 12 and thus, too young to compete in junior events during the 2009–10 season, including the 2010 World Junior Championships, as well as senior Grand Prix events during the 2010–11 season.
