关于奥运会的对话5

2006-05-16 14:38

  Jason: Annie, it is said you are an Olympic expert. Can you tell me anything about the ancient Olympics?

  Annie: Of course. What do you want to know?

  Jason: It's origin, fundament, development and abolishment, etc. I am writing an article on it.

  Annie: It's original place is Olympia, in Athens. It is a "Holy Land" of sports. The founder of it was a Greek, Yiphitus. It was he who declared to hold the Olympic Games every four years. The first Ancient Olympic Games were held in 776BC.

  Jason: Were all the participants native Greek?

  Annie: Yes, there were only Greek at the beginning. With the development of the Olympics, people came to participate in the

  Games from the land and sea of other places. And the sports events were much fewer than now, the time did not last as long as it does now, either.

  Jason: Did anybody use stimulants then?

  Annie: Yes, somebody did, but not as bad as now. It was a pity that the ancient Olympic Games began to decline after the Roman Empire dominated the ancient Greece. It was abolished in 394 AD. Due to two earthquakes and some battles, Olympia was destroyed completely, and the ancient Olympic Games, which has lasted over a thousand years, disintegrated.

  Jason: This was the sorrow of human beings. Annie, you are really an expert. I‘ve got it. Thank you very much.

  Annie: My pleasure.
