  在雅思口语换题后,describe a famous athlete you know这个话题再次出现在大家视野。2016年里约奥运会女子100米仰泳半决赛的赛后采访,让这位体育界的表情包瞬间爆红。她耿直率真幽默的回答配合毫不掩饰的表情,被媒体称为奥运赛场上的一股清流。她的采访回答一时间成为网络流行词,她也成为里约奥运会最具人气、最有影响力的运动员之一。之后,她又受邀参加了很多综艺节目,再次秀了一波她的搞笑才能。所以,即使你不知道她在赛场上获得的那些成就怎么说,光是聊聊这部分内容,也足够把两分钟撑满啦!

  I’d like to talk about Fu Yuanhui who’s a Chinese swimmer in our national team. She’s anaccomplished athlete, but she didn’t become a household name until her cheerful interview after the match in 2016 Rio Olympic Games. She won the third place with a personal best in the semi-final, but in the interview, she was thrilled like a champion. Unlike other athletes who are either toopretentious or too modest, she was pretty straightforward, I mean, she was not afraid to speak her mind. When asked about the result, she said “I’ve already done my best, I spared no effort, and I trained real hard, God knows what I’ve been through for the past several months.” And when she was talking, she had this goofy facial expression that was so hilarious, of course in a cute way, you know. And her famous saying “I’ve used up all of my supernatural powers.” has become acatchphrase overnight.

  After Olympic Games, she was invited to quite a few reality shows and talk shows, which gained her more popularity and nationwide recognition. Again, she showed her great sense of humor in those TV shows and many people became her fans.

  As a sportswoman she’s so special, I hope she could have more achievements in the near future.
