One year until Tokyo 2020

 


東京はオリンピックどころじゃない状況に逆戻りしていますが、池江選手のメッセージにはやはり心を打たれます。英語字幕もありますので英語の勉強にもなります。

The Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee have released a video at the Olympic Stadium to mark one year to go until the exact moment the Opening Ceremony will be held for the postponed Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

The video, which contained messages of support for all athletes aiming to participate at next year’s Games, was unveiled on the main screen of the Olympic Stadium at 8 p.m. local time and expressed Tokyo 2020’s determination to keep a beacon of hope alive until sports can resume as normal.
東京の組織員会とは別にオリンピックのチャンネルに上がっていたOne year until Tokyo 2020の方は全世界にアピールする内容になっています。池江選手だけでなく大坂選手も登場しているのは世界的な知名度から含まれたのでしょうか。



自分の国のアスリートに感情移入するのはどの国も同じでアメリカNBCの方はSimone Bilesを筆頭にアメリカ選手を使った動画になっています。



2020NEなんてうまく考えたと思ったんですが、英語ネイティブでも混乱を招くものだそうです。まあ4月にすでに2020NEというコンセプトが発表されていたようですが、今まで知らなかったので所詮その程度の普及度なのでしょう。。。

NBC Sports has released a promo centered around the fact the 2020 Olympics will now take place in 2021 but still marketed as the 2020 Olympics.

When the IOC announced that the Olympics would be pushed to 2021, it was also said it would still be marketed and officially known as the “2020” games

Using the banner “Same dream. Different Year,” NBC drives home that point with large text reading “2020NE.”

It’s obviously supposed to be read as “twenty twenty-one” and a round glyph is designed to do double duty as both the “O” in “one” and zero in “2020.”

まあNBCはオリンピックの放映権を買っている局ですから力の入れ具合が違いますね。



"Going in every day knowing and hoping 2021 is on the horizon keeps me going," the four-time Olympic gold medalist said on "TODAY.'

Superstar gymnast Simone Biles said despite the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics and the possibility the games might be cancelled outright, she and other Olympic athletes are continuing to "train as if."

"Going in every day knowing and hoping 2021 is on the horizon keeps me going," Biles, a four-time Olympic gold medalist and the most decorated female gymnast in history, said on "TODAY" on Thursday morning about her training.

こちらはオーストラリアの新聞コラムですが、やはり引き合いに出されるのはオーストラリアの選手たちです。

Friday would have been the day of the opening ceremony of the now postponed Tokyo Olympics. The athletes will pause, but not for long.

In the alternative world in which we all used to live, gold medal swimmer Mack Horton would be in the athlete’s village in Tokyo this Friday, keeping an idle eye on the Olympic Games opening ceremony on television and steeling himself for the 400 metres the next day.

Reigning world javelin champion Kelsey-Lee Barber would be in a training camp with the rest of the Australian team elsewhere in Japan, conducting an impromptu opening ceremony of their own. They did one in Florida just before the 2016 Rio Games and it’s a cherished memory.

オリンピックまであと一年という同じメッセージでも、伝え方は各国で違いが出るのは面白いものです。英語学習者は語学的正しさに関心が行きがちですが、このような観点も忘れないようにしたいです。
