你知道吗?很多世界最受欢迎的体育项目都起源于英国。从19世纪中期开始,英国就产生了10多项正式体育项目!

– Football: Probably the most popular sport created in England, football rules were first written in 1863!
足球:足球可能是英国创造的最流行的体育项目,比赛规则最初写于1863年!

橄榄球:橄榄球也是足球比赛的一种。英式橄榄球协会于1871年在英国成立!然而与足球不同的是,参加这项比赛的2个队各有15名球员,需要用手把球带进对方区域得分。

曲棍球:第一个曲棍球俱乐部成立于1849年,但“曲棍球”这个词在1363年就被爱德华三世记载过!这个比赛和足球类似,每队11名球员,需要用球棍击球。



– Curling: Curling was invented in Scotland in the medieval period, around the year 1540. Two teams of 4 players take turns to slide a stone on ice to a circular target. It takes a lot of skill to make sure the stones stop inside the target and players often knock their opponents' stones out of the way too!
冰壶:冰壶起源于1540年左右中世纪时期的苏格兰,两队各4名选手轮流在冰上把冰壶滑到营垒中心,确保冰壶停在目标区域内需要很多技巧,同时要把对方的冰壶撞跑!
