 is winning the 2003 World Balance Beam Title. Fan Ye earned a 9.812 for that gold medal performance and has the distinction of having the highest scoring routine at an international elite competition in the 2001-2004 quad.

Fan Ye qualified for the Chinese Olympic team in 2004. These games were a disappointment for her since she didn't qualify for the Individual All-Around or event finals.

She scored an 8.537 but redeemed herself slightly on balance beam. By then, and after two falls from teammate Li Ya on beam, it was too late and China ranked 7th that evening.
