The Summer Olympic Games in Rio are coming to an end. So far, the United State earned forty-six”金牌 (jīnpái) gold medals” and China has claimed twenty-six “金牌 (jīnpái) gold medals.” So many excellent athletes have left a deep impression on the audience. Do you remember Long Qingquan? He remarkably “破世界纪录 (pò shìjiè jìlù) broke the world record” in the weightlifting competition and won the gold medal.

Because of the “时差 (shíchā) jet lag,” it is common for Chinese people to “熬夜 (áoyè) stay up” in order to watch the games. Many competitions are so hot that Chinese audiences stay up until midnight to see the live show. It is never easy in China to watch the NBA, the European Cup or the Olympic Games, and many people have to “翘班 (qiàobān) skip work” the next day. But even the time difference cannot stop the Chinese people’s love of sports. 时差 (shíchā) jet lag
