笔记: 奥运过后(二次修改了)

楼主:野人花园 日期: 回贴:0 浏览:

The memory of Germany’s only other Summer Games held in Munich in 1972 will always be tainted by the killing of the Israeli athletes. But it should also be remembered for it’s outstanding architecture.

继1936年柏林奥运会后唯一一届德国奥运会,1972年慕尼黑奥运会,由于以色列运动员被害,这届奥运会的记忆中永远蒙上了污点。但是还值得被记忆的还有它无与伦比的奥运会建筑。

Munich [‘mju:nik] 慕尼黑(德国城市,巴伐利亚州首府)
tainted 1)verb/often pasive, to damage or spoil the quality of sth or the opinion that people have of sb/sth: The administration was tainted with scandal.
Israeli: adj以色列共和国的;n 以色列共和国民
Outstanding: 1)extremely good, excellent: and outstanding achivement
2)usually before noun, very obvious or important: the outstanding features of the landscape.
3)of payment, work, problems, etc, not yet paid, done, solved,etc: She has outstanding debts of over $500. A lot of work is still outstanding.
疑问?
Germany’s only other summer games是什么意思呢?是指除了二战时期的那场奥运会吗?应该怎么翻译呢?

Designed by Frei Otto, the main statium and indoor arenas were given revolutionary fabric roof coverage Inspired by spy webs. They are widely considered to be the most successful Olympic structures ever.

弗雷•奥托由蜘蛛网激发出灵感,设计了这个主场馆,其屋顶是一个史无前例的创新性结构。这个场馆受到广泛赞誉,被认为是奥运史上最成功的建筑。

Germany may have won the gold for architecture in 1972, but 4 years late in Montreal, it was a different story. Delays to the construction led to rumors that the games could be called off. In the end, they went to ahead even know the stadium hadn’t been completed, and the retractable roof didn’t work.

1972年,德国的奥运建筑可能说获得了一块金牌,但是四年后,在蒙特利尔,那就是另一个情况了。工程延期导致流言四起,说奥运会恐怕会叫停。最后,奥运会还是如期举办了,即使人们都知道场馆还没有建好,可伸缩的屋顶也不能用。

Montreal 蒙特利尔,加拿大
call off
1) To cancel or postpone: call off a trip; called the trip off.
2)To restrain or recall: Call off your dogs.
retractable :that can be moved or pulled back into the main part of sth: a knife with a retractable blade.

Today the people in Montreal rarely use this venue. But it’s taken them 30 years to pay off the one billion pound debt that incurred by hosting the Olympic games.
现在的蒙特利尔居民很少用到那个场馆。但是举办这场奥运会,他们却花了30年时间来偿还1亿英镑的债务。

bid for: 要求,争取,投标,出价竞买;


And that’s gonna be the theme to this Olympic games, or a day late or a dollar short. Now if you are going to look for monuments to the spirit of the Olympic movement, you’ve got to look elsewhere.

那将成为本届奥运会的主题,要么迟一天,要么损失一天的钱。假如你想找什么奥运精神的纪念碑,那你恐怕要去别处看看了。


the gamble paid off. Their refusals to sink fund into the fancy new venues in their strategic use of corporate sponsorship enabled them to turn a rare profit.
本句不会翻啦,请高手来帮忙!


when the Americans next hosted the Olympics in 1996. Atlanta was so naked in this pursuit of corporate cash that it became known as the Coca-Cola games.

在下一届1996年美国亚特兰大奥运会时,由于赤裸裸地追求企业赞助,奥运会变成了可口可乐运动会。


It’s relentless commercialism embarrassed the Olympic movement, and worse, left no benefit the local people.

无休止的商业活动让奥林匹克运动蒙羞,更糟糕的是,当地人民丝毫没有从中受益。
