Shi made her first Chinese team at the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, where she achieved two medals, a gold and a bronze, in swimming. She started off the meet by surpassing Japan's Kanako Watanabe in the first half of the race to smash the Asian Games record for a gold medal victory in the 100 m breaststroke with a time of 1:06.67, vaulting her up to eighth in the world rankings. The following day, in the 200 m breaststroke, Shi fell behind the Japanese duo Watanabe and Rie Kaneto in a sprint finish to claim the bronze at 2:23.58.

At the 2015 FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia, Shi added two more medals, a gold and a bronze, to her career tally. In her first event, 100 m breaststroke, Shi lowered her personal best to 1:06.55 for a fifth-place finish in the final, missing out the podium by 0.13 seconds. Three days later, Shi swam a matching time of 2:22.76 in a three-way tie with Spain's Jessica Vall Montero and Denmark's world-record holder Rikke Møller Pedersen for a bronze in the 200 m breaststroke final. On the final night of the meet, Shi and her teammates Fu Yuanhui, Lu Ying, and Shen Duo put up a fast finish in 3:54.41 to claim the gold in the 4 × 100 m medley relay, just over two seconds away of the current meet record set by her team in 2009.
