第004讲:划艇 - Crew

作者:VOA体育美语 发布日期:9-20-2008

Y: Hi, 大家好。我是杨晨。

P: And I'm Patrick. So, today Yang Chen we are going to be introducing everyone to this sport...

(Sound effect of rowing)

P: it's called crew.

Y: That's right. Crew 也叫 rowing,就是划艇运动。

P: Crew or rowing is a sport with an ancient history, but the first races took place in England.

(God Save the Queen music).

Y: 最早的Crew 比赛开始于英国,在牛津这些英国大学非常流行。不过划艇也是美国大学校园历史最悠久的一项体育活动。

P: Crew involves teams of 2, 4 or 8 rowers in a row boat called a shell.

Y: 划艇用的船叫做 shell。这是一项集体运动,有两人,也有四人或八人一组的。

P:A shell can be very long. A shell for a team of eight rowers is about 60 feet long!

Y: Whoa, 60 feet,那就等于是18米多!

P: To row a boat that long requires a lot of upper body strength and endurance.

Y: Upper body strength 上半身要有力气,尤其是臂力。Look at my muscles, Patrick.

P: Very impressive. I think you should take up the sport of crew or rowing and maybe someday you can participate in the Olympic games.

Y: Nah. 我虽然有Upper body strength,但是endurance耐力不够。Hmm,I could use some exercise.

P: What do you say we head to the gym and do some serious rowing?

Y: Let's go!
