为竞技比赛最大的魅力是竞赛结果的不确定性,以及运动员内在的健将风范。在竞技运动的比赛中,无论是两强相遇或是强弱相对,其 比赛结果都可能出人意料之外而使其充满悬念。由于体育运动竞赛是直接追求胜负、公开挑战极限、在规定的时间内能及时看到结果的 比赛形式,使人们在体育竞技中可以强烈地体验到胜利后的狂喜、失败后的悲伤,战胜自我的自豪,意志软弱的羞愧。 ; http://www.bbtysl.com 猫先生官网 jyh17kae

但是这并不是竞技魅力的全部。奥林匹克运动会的发起人皮埃尔·德·顾拜旦曾说过:“奥运会重要的不是胜利而是参与,生活的本质 不是索取而是奋斗。在奥林匹克这个舞台上,有几万人在为自己的理想而奋斗,有几十万人,甚至几百万、几千万、几亿人在为了来到 这个舞台而不断超越着自我。他们中间的一些人可能最终也与金牌无缘,但一直在努力且永不放弃,应该赢得社会的尊重和敬意”。其 实,金牌并不是奥运会的全部。如果其光环被无限放大,也就背离了奥林匹克的本意。 天真的提醒。相差十岁开外,已经有一代的辈份了吧?怎么好叫哥哥呢?“是。叔、叔,要教~导、你——!”轻狂书生一发咬上了牙。 小童生打个寒噤,觉得叔叔好怪哦!满脸写满疑问,就被怪叔叔脚不沾地的拖走了。各人都两两分好了组,便各安其位,每组自据一案, 个个面壁,低声商议,推一人执笔,免得由笔迹泄露哪句是谁所作。“你来写吧。”宝音对刘晨寂轻声道。她写字还不算特别顺,不敢 献丑。刘晨寂也不推让,执起笔来,问:“你要什么韵?”宝音沉思好一会儿:“我只想出几个字,别等我了。你喜欢用什么 韵?”“我不妨。”刘晨寂道,“先尽着你罢。”宝音低低道:“期。花期的期。”刘晨寂点头,算是记下了。他总不动笔,宝音想得 了一联,怕时间不够,也不好等他了,赧然道:“我有一联。”刘晨寂便提笔。宝音当他自己要写了,等他,他只静着,反在等宝音。 宝音方悟,他提笔,是要她说句子,他好录,忙红着脸报给他:“野老闲与朱鹭钓,娇娥笑对杏花期。”怕写得不好,被他笑,声如蚊 蚋,有几个字,简直连自己都听不清。他录下来,一字不错,点点头:“挺好。”又问:“这是颈联了。后头呢?”后头,宝音想不出 怎么结尾。刘晨寂道:“那我先写前半首?”宝音点头。刘晨寂舒袖展锋,并不思索,写道:“久梦桃夭始自知,江南已是落花时。半 城红谢唐人卷,两处青余陌上词。”如在静默的冬夜,捧起一盏清茶,齿颊留香。他这样好的文风,前一题,怎交白卷?因他不在乎丢 脸,宝音在乎。他特来替宝音解围、与宝音搭档,就不能叫宝音在众人目光之下,冷汗涔涔。他为何对宝音这样好?宝音被感动了。她 感动的时候,往往脑袋就会变成一团浆糊。明柯当时若不用私奔的故事来感动她,她也不会犯糊涂去盗出金像。可惜她糊涂的时候,就 写不出诗了。时间已快到,有的人已经交卷了。刘晨寂道:“还有尾联?”宝音知道还有尾联,但她哪里编得出来了。“你心事太重 了。”刘晨寂叹道。是,宝音除了感动之外,还在猜他为何对她好,是不是跟表 有什么渊源,又想到明柯私奔的故事里,会不会有什么 真情,还在想恩与怨、情与仇、前世与今生,孰取孰舍、何去何从。“交给我罢?”刘晨寂无奈道。“嗯。”宝音应道。恍惚间她觉得 把手里一切难解的题,都交给刘晨寂发付了。刘晨寂写下收句:“须知桃下少年好,得意时节正展眉。” 看了她一眼,这是他对她的期 许么?叫她放下一切,专心享受表 的人生?宝音满眼的疑问,刘晨寂低下头去收拾纸笔,似再无意愿跟宝音交流,纸卷底下,却不动声 色递过来一件东西?宝音手指触及,但觉是张很小的纸,叠成个包,不知里头装了什么东西,心头狂跳。这是什么?“回家之前,找空
