英语口语告诉你一生必知的事10:几种极限运动介绍(mp3 +双语阅读)

What makes extreme sports so popular? The answer is the pursuit of challenges and risks. At present, there is a new extreme sport born almost every week. The following are some new ones:
究竟是什么使得极限运动如此流行?答案便是对挑战及冒险的不断追逐。现如今,几乎每一周都有一种新的极限运动诞生。下面便是几种新型的极限运动:

Street luging
街头雪撬


This extreme sport is considered very dangerous and involves riding a street-luging-board, or a sled, down paved roads or courses. Sometimes, these adrenaline(剌激) seekers luge down hills in the middle of traffic, which made the sport much more risky.
这是一项很危险的极限运动,参与者坐在街撬板或者雪撬上,沿着铺设好的路线急速滑行。有时候寻求剌激的人们会顺着山坡滑到道路中央,因而使得该运动的危险性极大。

Rock jumping
跳岩

Rock jumping is as crazy and descriptive(描述的) as it sounds. Each jumping from rock to rock means a new success for adrenaline junkies. Some even jump long distances with 100 feet more drops in between. Definitely it's not for the faint-hearted.
正如其名字所描述的那样,跳岩运动极为疯狂。跳岩的美妙在于每从一块岩石跳到另一块岩石时,对于参与者而言都意味着一次成功。有些人甚至在间距超过100 英尺的岩石间跳跃。因而胆小的人是绝对不适合这项运动的。

Kite jumping
凤筝跳跃


Although it looks like a lot of fun , it is actually extremely dangerous. It is similar to power kiting, but with this you simple jump into the air for brief periods of time, and allow the wind to drag you along. The most difficult part about kite jumping (and the most dangerous) is actually in the landing which is said to be hard to control.
虽然看起来这项运动很好玩,但事实上它却是极为危险的。它有点像动力风筝,但这个只需要你在极短的时间内跳入空中,借助风力前行。这项运动最难的部分(也是最危险的部分)就在于着陆很不容易控制。

In all, when one kind of extreme sport is born, extreme sport lovers are born, because young people like challenging "all things impossible".
总之,只要一个新的极限运动诞生了,那么它的爱好者就会出现,因为年轻人总是喜欢挑战所有“不可能的事情”。
