This is a Chinese name; the family name is Xu.

Xu Binshu (simplified Chinese: 许斌姝; traditional Chinese: 許斌姝; pinyin: Xǔ Bīnshū; born July 28, 1988 in Changchun, Jilin) is a Chinese figure skater. She is the 2004 & 2006 Chinese national champion. She won the bronze medal at the 2007 Asian Winter Games.

On February 14, 2011, Xu's age became the subject of controversy.[2] Although her International Skating Union bio lists Xu as born on July 28, 1988, a Chinese skating association website suggested she was born on July 29, 1990,[2] but it disappeared from the website by February 15.[3] On February 17, the ISU said there were no discrepancies in terms of the birthdates listed on Xu's passport, ISU registration forms and the Chinese Olympic Committee's website.[3]
