2009年3月7日雅思阅读文章

  本次阅读从题材上而言,是比较新的,不象2月28号的两旧一新,其中第一篇文章还破天荒的出现了比较时事性的题材,Olympic Torch,可能是2008奥运会的影响力太大了吧!摘出下文以供“烤鸭”参考:

  Introduction of Olympic Torch Relay

  In the context of the modern Games, the Olympic flame represents the positive values that Man has always associated with fire. The purity of the flame is guaranteed by the way it is lit using the sun’s rays.

  The choice of Olympia as a departure point emphasises the link between the Ancient and Modern Games and underlines the profound connection between these two events.

  Relay

  The flame is carried by relay all the way to its final destination. Although it is usually carried by runners on foot, other modes of transport are also used. For air transport, the flame is sheltered in a security lamp, similar to a miner’s lamp. At night time, it burns in special cauldrons. All along its route, the flame heralds the upcoming Olympic Games and transmits a message of peace and friendship amongst peoples.

  STADIUM

  The highlight of the opening ceremony of the Olympics is the entrance of the Olympic flame into the stadium. The identity of the final torchbearer is kept secret until the last moment. It is often a personality from the sports world or a young person symbolising hope for the future.

  The final torchbearer often does a lap of the stadium before lighting the monumental cauldron with the Olympic flame. A symbolic release of doves evokes the climate of peace in which the Olympic Games should take place.

  The flame remains lit for the duration of the Games and is only extinguished at the closing ceremony.
