But the Olympic Games will need competitors. Around 11,500 of them are expected, accompanied by 79,000 support staff, officials and journalists. Getting athletes from 205 countries, as well as their bags, boats, bows and arrows to Japan is a challenge. Travel restrictions rule out some routes. With far fewer flights than usual running, most journeys involve multiple stops. Some of Fiji’s team flew in a cargo plane. And then there’s the question of what to pack. Athletes will be confined to their quarters. The Canadians are bringing board games to pass the time. Sending equipment by sea risks lengthy delays. Horses must be quarantined too. Athletes may only move into the Olympic village seven days before they compete and must leave within 48 hours of finishing. So dropping out of a tournament early will mean disappointment followed by another race: to book a seat on a flight home. 2020 東奧宣佈禁止觀眾入場,但奧運場上還是需要有選手的現身。此屆預估有來自 205個國家、約 11,500位選手夥同其他 79,000名支援人力、官員和記者一同來到東京。但把他/她們與其隨身行李、比賽用船、比賽用弓箭送到日本卻是件大工程。部分航線由於旅遊上的禁令而停飛,再加上遠比平常還少很多的航班,使得選手們必須中停好幾站才能順利抵達東京。部分斐濟 (Fiji,一太平洋島國) 代表隊隊員甚至搭乘貨機前往 (日本東奧)。其次是到底要帶什麼的問題。參賽選手被要求待在自己的宿舍內。加拿大選手帶了棋盤遊戲來打發時間。透過海運寄送比賽用具恐有延遲抵達的風險,而參賽馬匹也必須被隔離 (檢疫)。參賽選手只能在賽前 7天進入奧運選手村,並且必須在比賽結束後 48小時內離開。因此,提前在賽事中出局的話,將面臨另外一場搶機票回國大賽的囧境。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Competitor (n.): 競爭者、競爭對手 (名) ✅Accompanied by (adj.): 伴隨著、偕同著 (形) ✅Athlete (n.): 運動員 (名) ✅Rule out (v.): 排除 (動) ✅Involve (v.): 涉及、包含 (動) ✅Be confined to (adj.): 被限制於 (形) ✅Equipment (n.): 設備、器材 (名) ✅Lengthy (adj.): 冗長的、漫長的 (形) ✅Tournament (n.): 比賽、競賽、競技 (名) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專: ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號: ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道: ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台: — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤
