This is not Su Bingtian’s first It was rumored that he was a descendant of Su Shi. As early as after the Tokyo Olympics, the Su family’s ancestral hall in Guyi Village, Guzhen Town, Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province, was exposed by netizens. When introducing Su Bingtian, it clearly stated that Su Bingtian was the twenty-ninth generation grandson of the Northern Song Dynasty writer Su Dongpo and the second general of the Southern Song Dynasty Su Liuyi. Eleven generations of grandchildren. In the winter of 2021, Su Bingtian returned to his hometown to worship his ancestors, which once again attracted attention.

As early as 2021, writer Jiang Lan signed a contract with the Writers Publishing House to write “The Biography of Su Dongpo” in the “Hundred Chinese Biography” series, which is expected to be handed over for publication in 2023. At the same time, he is also preparing to write a biography of Su Dongpo’s mother, Mrs. Cheng, and a biography of Su Dongpo suitable for young people to read. Simultaneously promoting three biographies related to Su Dongpo, he read a large number of historical materials and documents related to it, and planned to visit places of great significance to Su Dongpo one by one.

Talking about the hot search topic “Su Bingtian is a descendant of Su Shi”, Jiang Lan believes that the possibility exists entirely because Su Liuyi is clearly mentioned in the genealogy of Su’s ancestral hall. Su Liuyi, the famous anti-Yuan general in the Southern Song Dynasty, is the eighth grandson of Su Dongpo and the descendant of Su Tan, the eldest son of Su Dongpo and his wife Wang Fu, the eldest son of Su Mai. At that time, because of the war, the descendants of Su Liuyi were forced to move south and settle in the Guangdong area, but did not stay in Meishan, Sichuan. “This possibility is very high.”

Jiang Lan’s research found that three generations of Su Shi’s family love sports and have good physical fitness. Su Shi’s grandfather, Su Xu, had to work in the fields every day.

Su Shi’s father, Su Xun, was keen to travel around the rivers and lakes, from the surrounding areas of Sichuan to the wider world. Even when Su Xu died, he was still studying in Jiangxi. “Walking alone in the rivers and lakes, carrying a coil but not being robbed, can’t do without some leg strength and kung fu.” Jiang Lan said.

And Su Shi himself loves physical exercise since childhood, and is not a weak scholar. “Dongpo Yingzhao Collection” records his concept of self-cultivation: “Those who are good at self-cultivation will make them able to relax and work hard, move their steps, and make them adapt to the changes of cold and heat. Injury.” His fitness method is long-distance running. In a letter to his friend Cheng Zhengfu, there is a wonderful self-report: “Morning revitalization must be within ten miles of a disease, and Qi damage will be slowed down. Xuantong is smooth and comfortable, and if you practice it for a long time, you should know that it is wonderful.” This means that he would run ten miles every morning when he got up, running until his head and feet were warm and his limbs were comfortable.

In addition, Su Shi started practicing qigong when he was a teenager. He wrote a poem describing the effect of qigong on nourishing the heart: “Whoever embellishes the clouds and the moon is bright, the sky is full of colors and the sea is clear.” Running in the morning and practicing Qigong in the evening, such exercise habits made him “plant 30,000 pine trees in his hands”, and also made him “lighter than horses with bamboo sticks and sandals”, all of which show that he has a good physique and exercise cells developed.

Talking about the sports genes of Su Shi’s family and Su Bingtian’s sprinting achievements, Jiang Lan said with a smile, this may be a historical metaphor or genetic inheritance.
