大家好,欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese。今天我们继续来聊北京冬季奥运会。上次,我们说了谷爱凌,一个在北京冬奥会上备受瞩目的新星。今天,我们来说一说另一位运动员,他是日本人,他也可能是最受中国人欢迎的日本运动员之一。他的名字是羽生结弦(Yuzuru Hanyu),一位花样滑冰运动员。

在羽生结弦来到北京参加比赛之前,在中国的社交网站上每天都有很多人问:“羽生结弦到底什么时候来?”他来到北京以后,人们对他的比赛都非常关注,每天都有关于他的新闻报道。了解中国和日本历史的朋友也许知道,因为过去的战争,现在中国和日本的关系一直有点敏感。那么,羽生结弦,作为一个日本人,为什么会这么受欢迎?为什么会有这么多人喜欢着他,支持他?我想,这是因为羽生结弦的经历鼓励了很多人,也让很多人敬佩。他的人生,是热血的人生,是永不放弃的人生。

1994年,羽生结弦出生在日本的东北。在他只有四岁的时候,他开始滑冰。2004年,他开始参加花样滑冰的全国比赛。在这之后,他参加了很多国际比赛,拿了很多奖牌。在2014年和2018年的冬季奥运会上,羽生结弦连续拿了两次花样滑冰比赛的金牌。他的成功来自于他的天赋和努力。因为滑冰,他有一身的伤,但无论训练多么辛苦,他都没有放弃。

2014年,在参加国际比赛的时候,羽生结弦在热身时和另一位运动员撞上了,头破了,他的血染红了冰面,他也晕过去了。他醒来以后,所有人都让他放弃比赛,他说:“没问题的,我到死也会滑。”他绑着绷带继续比赛。在短短的几分钟里,他摔倒了五次,每一次摔倒之后都爬起来。看着他一次又一次摔倒,爬起,很多观众都哭了。他完全是依靠着意志力完成了比赛。

2018年,在羽生结弦的比赛中,一位中国的解说员这样评价他:“命运对勇士低语:‘你无法抵御风暴。’勇士低声回应:‘我就是风暴。’羽生结弦,一位不待扬鞭自奋蹄的选手。他取得今天的成就,值得全场观众全体起立鼓掌的回馈。”

在今年的北京冬季奥运会中,羽生结弦挑战了一个叫4A的动作,这是一个以前从来没有人在比赛中做过的动作,非常难,差不多是人类的极限。他摔倒了,没有成功,只拿了第四名,但是他依然获得了所有人的尊敬。他还说,他打算继续挑战这个动作。

这就是体育的魅力吧。运动员们不断挑战自己,也鼓励我们不断挑战自己。我们一生唯一的对手,只有我们自己。

Hello everyone. Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese. Today let’s carry on talking about the Beijing Winter Olympics. Last time we talked about Eileen Gu, a rising star who attracts tremendous attention in the Beijing Winter Olympics. Today, we are going to talk about another athlete. He is Japanese, and might also be one of the most popular Japanese athletes in China. His name is Yuzuru Hanyu, a figure skator.

Before Yuzuru Hanyu came to Beijing to participate in the competition, many people asked every day on Chinese social media websites: "When will Yuzuru Hanyu come?" After he came to Beijing, people paid great attention to his competition. Every day there are news reports about him. Those who know the history of China and Japan may know that because of the war, the relationship between China and Japan has always been tense. Why is Yuzuru Hanyu, as a Japanese, so popular? Why do so many people like him and support him? I think this is because Yuzuru Hanyu's experience has inspired many people, and he is admired by them. His life is about passion and never giving up.

Yuzuru Hanyu was born in the northeast of Japan in 1994. He started skating when he was only 4 years old. In 2004, he started participating in national competitions in figure skating. After this, he participated in many international competitions and won many medals. At the 2014 and 2018 Winter Olympics, Yuzuru Hanyu won two gold medals in figure skating. His success comes from his talent and hard work. Because of skating, he was injured all over, but no matter how hard the training was, he never gave up.

In 2014, while participating in an international competition, Yuzuru Hanyu collided with another athlete during a warm-up. He broke his head and his blood stained the ice. He passed out. When he woke up and everyone told him to quit the game, he said, "It's ok, I'm going to keep skating until I die." He continued the show with the bandages on his head. In just a few minutes, he fell five times, getting up after each fall. Watching him fall and get up again and again, many viewers cried. He completed the game entirely on willpower.

In 2018, at Yuzuru Hanyu's game, a Chinese commentator said of him: "Fate whispered to the warrior: 'You can't withstand the storm.' The warrior responded in a low voice: 'I am the storm.' Yuzuru Hanyu is an athlete who is totally self-motivated and hard working. His achievement today deserves standing applause from the entire audience."

At this year's Beijing Winter Olympics, Yuzuru Hanyu challenged a move called 4A, a move that no one had ever done in a competition before. It is really difficult and almost the limit of a human being. He fell, didn't make it, and only got 4th place, but he still had everyone's respect. He also said he planned to continue to challenge the move.

That is the beauty of sports. Athletes keep challenging themselves, and we are encouraged to keep challenging ourselves. The only opponent we have in life is ourselves.
