In the 2012 London Games, Chen became the first Chinese athlete ever to win an Olympic gold medal in 20 km racewalk event. He is also the second Chinese male athlete to win a gold medal in any athletic event of the Olympics, after Liu Xiang's gold in 110 m hurdles at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. Chen finished the race in 1:18:46 and established a new Olympic record. He achieved this feat one day before his birthday and considered it as a "wonderful gift". His teammates Wang Zhen and Cai Zelin finished third and fourth, with Guatemala's Erick Barrondo in second.
