Why the world’s eighth most populous country never has won an Olympic medal

为什么世界第八人口大国一块奥运奖牌都没有

7ad017f50ad23be6018f7bacb3f80baa

Thirty-two years after Bangladesh’s Olympic debut, the world’s eighth most populous country still has not won a single medal, nor has it even managed to produce a viable contender. No Bangladeshi athlete has competed at the Winter Games, and none of the country’s 43 summer Olympians have placed better than 21st in an event.

自32年前孟加拉国首次参加奥运会以来,这个世界人口第八大国连一块奥运奖牌都没有,甚至连一个像样的奥运选手都没有培养出来。冬奥会上从没看过孟加拉国运动员的身影,而该国的43名奥运选手从没有进入过前20名。

While population rankings typically are a poor barometer for Olympic success, Bangladesh’s futility is still unfathomable for a country with an estimated 160 million residents. Of the world’s 40 most populous countries, the only others without an Olympic medal are war-ravaged Democratic Republic of Congo (No. 18) and Myanmar (No. 26), which until recently had been governed by an oppressive military dictatorship.

虽然人口排名并不能成为奥运成功与否的晴雨表,但是对于一个拥有1.6亿人口的国家来说,孟加拉国的奥运差劲表现真是令人难以理解。在人口排名前40的国家中,同样没有获得奥运奖牌的国家是深陷战乱的刚果皿煮共和国(第18)和直到不久前还受军事独裁政权统治的缅甸(第26)

Seven athletes from Bangladesh competed in Rio the past two weeks with only modest success to show for it.

过去两周有7名孟加拉国运动员参加了奥运的比赛,成绩平平。

There are places in world like Kenya where people live 2 KM above sea level in mountains and they have to walk up and down 5 km everyday for simple things like water… They have been struggling for centuries, this kind of struggle makes you tougher, perfect for middle distance running … Bangladesh on the other hand has the most fertile land in the world, no place even comes close, you just spread the seed and just like that land returns you crop in abundance, you do not have to struggle for water, it is everywhere, it is not a climate that produce tough people… They have struggle though, people working whole day to support family, Natural calamity like flood kills people but makes the land even more fertile… These kind of struggle is not suitable for producing Olympians… On top of that , because of overpopulation, people are poor, many suffer from malnutrition, they have no time for sports, Unlike USA, schools there have virtually no facilities for sports… I do not see Bangladesh winning any medal in next 32 years either.

在世界上的某些地方,比如肯尼亚人居住在海拔2公里的山上,他们每天为了取水需要走5公里。几个世纪以来他们都是这样生活的,所以身体得到了锻炼,很适合中程赛跑。

而孟加拉国这样的国家拥有世界上最肥沃的土地,只要撒撒种子就可以获得丰收,没必要为水而挣扎,到处都是水,所以一方水土养一方人。但是他们也有自己的艰辛,他们从早到玩工作支持家庭,也深受洪水的伤害,但是洪水让农田更多肥沃。

所以这样的生活方式不适合于产生奥运会选手。此外。因为人口过多,人们很穷,很多都营养不良,没时间搞体育,学校里几乎没有体育设施,和美国没法比。所以即使再过32年,我觉得孟加拉国也得不到奖牌。

You just wait until the Spelling Bee is in the olympics. It’s already on ESPN.

等着瞧吧,拼字比赛将加入奥运会。已经在ESPN上出现了。

Corruption, lack of training and lack of physical fitness.

腐败,缺乏训练,身体素质不够。

Olympic sports just don’t mean that much to them.

他们不看重奥运会。

Maybe they have better priorities than taking people’s tax dollars to support a professional exerciser.

比起拿纳税人的钱去支持运动员,他们或许有更重要的事情要办。

I have been there. They are so densely populated I don’t think they have land anywhere near the city for a sports complex

我去过那里。那里的人口真是太多了,所以在城市里我觉得他们没有多余的空间来建体育设施了。

Sports are not viewed as something career worthy by the parents in those countries. They view it as a waste of time. There is no organized school, college, university sports. People who make it there make it totally on their own to get to the national level. But by then they are too old to teach them anything. They are fundamentally flawed in every sport, bad coaching compare to the elite levels, bed equipment, bad diets, etc.

这些国家的家长不认为体育是个值得追求的事业。他们认为那是浪费时间。那里没有学校运动会。那些国家的运动员都是靠自己才达到国家水平的。到那时他们已经老了,教不动了。他们在运动方面存在着根本性的缺陷,教练,设施,饮食都不好。

Perhaps Bangladesh’s resources are being directed to more worthwhile pursuits, like trying to feed and provide water to their population.

或许孟加拉国将资源用在了更加重要的地方,比如给人民提供食物和水资源。

Of course Bangladesh doesn’t have any athletic training facilities. All their children are busing in textile factories. Now, when the mechanical loom rips their arms off, they might have time to train for the para-olympic games.

孟加拉国当然没有任何的运动训练设施。他们的所有儿童都在纺织工厂里上班。如果他们的手臂被机器斩断,这样或许他们才有时间为参加残奥会而进行训练。

Olympics has more to do with money and culture. Sports is a biggest thing in the West than in those other cultures.

奥运会更多的与金钱和文化相关。相比于其他文化和国家,体育在西方国家是最重大的事情。

  1. 建议三泰虎入驻。今日头条。那里的访问量更多,而且对推广三泰虎也有好处。况且点击量还能得到一定比例的***奖金分成,一点要去哦

  2. 本届奥运会,孟加拉只有7名运动员参赛。另一个南亚人口大国巴基斯坦也没好到哪里去。实际上,整个南亚地区体育水平在全世界都是垫底。

  3. 1、南亚人口多,国家普遍比较穷,没有经济能力支持体育投资;2、南亚大部分处于热带地区,温度高、湿度高,人们的身体素质普遍较差;3、南亚人种是否不适合体育运动?
