关键字:奥运英语 菲尔普斯

When the whole world is writing about someone like Michael Phelps, you tend to get a lot of overlap. If youve been following the Olympics by now, you probably know the basics: Phelps grew up just outside of Baltimore, and battled ADHD as a kid. He was raised mostly by his mother, Debbie, a middle school principal. You might feel as if youve heard those details hundreds of times by now. But that isnt everything you need to know about Phelps. In fact, here are some things you never knew.

全世界人都在报道迈克尔·菲尔普斯,你读到的东西基本大同小异。如果你现在追着看奥运会,你肯定了解了菲尔普斯的一些基本事实:菲尔普斯在巴尔的摩郊区长大,小时候曾患多动症。他几乎是他做中学校长的母亲黛比一手抚养长大。这些故事你听了不下一百遍了,不过下面的这些你不见得真的知道。

1 He wears two caps

1、他戴两顶帽子。

This is actually something a lot of swimmers do, and its probably more psychological than anything. The goal is to make your head as smooth as possible and thus be able to move through the water faster. When races are decided by hundredths of a second, swimmers will try to get any advantage. Mostly, it simply feels more secure.

实际上很多游泳运动员都同时戴两顶泳帽,这样头部就能尽可能平滑,以减少阻力,游得更快。比赛有可能只靠百分之一秒来角逐胜负,所以选手们会尽量争取任何一点优势。大多数情况下这只是为自我安慰一下。

2 Erik Vendt, not Ryan Lochte, is his closest friend

2、他最亲近的朋友是埃里克·文特,而非里安·罗切特。

Phelps and Lochte are pals -- they have a shared interest in music, women, life -- but they never talk about swimming. Theyre too competitive. Vendt, who trained with Phelps the last two years in Michigan, was one of his closest confidants during this difficult year that included uneven training and a broken wrist. Theyre also roommates during most meets.

菲尔普斯和罗切特是分享音乐、女人、生活方面乐趣的朋友,不过他们从来不谈论游泳。他们之间的竞争太激烈了。文特和菲尔普斯过去两年里在密歇根一起训练,是一起经历过艰苦训练和手腕受伤时期的亲密战友。各地赛事中他们都是室友。

3 He wears different suits for different events

3、他在不同场赛事不同的泳衣。

When you watch Phelps swim the freestyle events, he usually wears the kind of Speedo LZR Racer that has straps over his shoulders and goes all the way down to his ankles. But when he swims an event where he needs to perform the butterfly stroke, he only wears the LZR Racer pants. Because so much shoulder motion is required for the fly, he feels more comfortable without something over his shoulders. Youll also see him in the relays immediately unzip his suit and pull it off his shoulders and down around his waist. Its not a vanity thing; its because the suits are ridiculously tight and most swimmers want to unzip as soon as possible.

菲尔普斯自由泳比赛的时候通常穿扎在肩膀、直抵脚踝的Speedo LZR Racer。但是当比赛中有蝶泳姿势的时候他就只穿LZR Racer泳裤,因为蝶泳姿势需要肩部大幅度运动,所以他需要不穿上衣来减少束缚。你也会在接力比赛中看到他迅速解开泳衣把肩上的部分拽到腰间去。这不是无用功,因为泳衣非常紧迫,大多数游泳运动员都想赶紧脱下。
