This is What’s Trending Today.

On August 16, 1954, Sports Illustrated published its first-ever magazine. The new publication led with an article called the “The Golden Age is Now.”

1954年8月16日,体育画报发布了首期杂志。这一新刊物以一篇题为“黄金时代就在眼下”的文章作为开篇大作。

Sixty-two years later, Sports Illustrated is one of the most famous sports publications in the world. And, now it has published perhaps its most golden magazine cover yet.

62年之后,体育画报是全球最著名的体育刊物之一。而现在该杂志发布了迄今为止最为金光闪闪的杂志封面。

The cover photo of the August 22 edition of the magazine features U.S. Olympic gold medal swimmers Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps, and gold-medal gymnast Simone Biles. The cover reads: “The Greatests.”

8月22日这期杂志的封面照片刊载了奥运金牌游泳选手姬蒂·雷德基(Katie Ledecky)、迈克尔·菲尔普斯(Michael Phelps)以及金牌体操运动员西蒙·拜尔斯(Simone Biles)。封面主题为“最伟大人物”。

Together, the three athletes won 16 Olympic medals in Rio de Janeiro. Thirteen of them are gold.

这三名运动员在里约热内卢一共获得了16块奥运奖牌,其中13块是金牌。

Shortly after the magazine released its “Greatests” cover this week, it became a trending topic on social media.

Phelps is the most decorated Olympian of all time, with 28 medals. The 31-year-old won six medals in Rio, five of them gold. Nineteen-year-old Ledecky won four gold medals and a silver medal in Rio.

而同样只有19岁,第一次参加奥运会的拜尔斯获得4块金牌和1块铜牌。她并列成为在一届奥运会获得最多金牌的女子体操运动员。
