She was an Olympic medalist in 1968, and was named the Associated Press Athlete of the Year for 1970. Chi studied on the college level at the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona) in Pomona, California, where she received most of her athletic training. As a student there, she won four U.S. national championships and over a two year period was the winner of 153 of the 154 events she entered. Representing the Republic of China (as Taiwan), she won the bronze medal in the women's 80-meter hurdles in the 1968 Summer Olympics. In 1970, she broke or tied three world records, accomplishing this feat in the space of just one week. For her achievement, Chi Cheng was named the Associated Press Athlete of the Year. Also, she became the Director of Women's Athletics at the University of Redlands, California, from 1974 to 1976. Chi naturalised as a U.S. citizen, but later returned to her native Taiwan. She was appointed the Secretary-General of the Republic of China Track and Field Association in 1977.
