因为想考翻译证,最近很喜欢看China Daily,也很喜欢把China Daily中颇有意思的新闻抄录下来练笔。

之前用茄子说的方法,把新闻中不懂的单词抄下来,以首字母排好,然后按字母顺序一个一个地背。这样在背完A字母的单词后,看新闻就不会再出现一个以A开头而我又不懂的单词了。这个方法听起来好像很玄乎,但真照着做了大半年,发现现在看新闻真的几乎没有一个不懂的以A开头的单词了。好神奇……

当然,我不是说茄子说这个方法真有多好,只是觉得把背单词和看新闻结合在一起,还挺有意思的,而且从某个奇怪的方面而言,可是相当有成就感的哦!因为新闻的用语比较固定,同一类话题中,单词出现的重复率可是相当高的哦!

熊孩子,趁着立夏的热量,开始学习吧!

China's Su Bingtian runs historic sub-10 second 100m in Eugene

EUGENE, United States - China's sprinter Su Bingtian became the first Asian-born to officially beat the 10.00 seconds barrier in the men's 100 meters.

In Saturday's Eugene Grand Prix, the 1.71m-tall runner finished third in 9.99 seconds, behind American Tyson Gay in 9.88 and Mike Rodgers in 9.90.

"I am so proud for my result. I can write my name into history now and will work harder and run faster," said the 25-year-old.

Although Qatar's Nigerian-born Femi Ogunode became the fastest man on the continent in last year's Asian Games when he clocked 9.93 seconds in the 100 meters, Asian-born athletes had been working hard for years to beat 10 seconds barrier until Su.

Previously, China's Zhang Peimeng, who raced to his personal best of 10.00 in 2013 Moscow world championships, is considered the closest to beating the barrier, together with Japanese teenager Yoshihide Kiryu, who ran a wind-assisted unofficial 9.87 at a meet in Austin, Texas in March.

Su was filled with confidence and started to set his sight on "creating miracles" for China in August's world championships at the famous "Bird's Nest" National Stadium in Beijing.

"This is definitely a huge boost for me. Last time in Moscow, Zhang Peimeng was ranked ninth with 10 seconds, which made me feel that we are very close to entering the top eight and beating 10 seconds," he said.

"I hope in this year's world championships, I can work some miracles for my country in 100m and 4x100m relay," he said.

China's world and Olympics 110m hurdles champion Liu Xiang witnessed Su's record-breaking performance.

"You are great! You are great!" said Liu, who announced retirement in May.

"I told him to be himself and hold on to the last moment. And he did it. I am so honored to be present for the historical moment," he said.

It is an easy text, and I suppose that no one will misunderstand such a wonderful news! Checked online, the world record for 100m race is 9.58s, much ahead of Su's personal best record of 9.99s in Eugene Grand Prix, which means he still has a long way to run. But, it is indeed a good start! Su showed us the possibility for Yellow race to combat with those won their fames on sprint. Congratulations! How proud we are!
