This is What’s Trending Today:

Friday was World Photo Day. According to World Photo Day’s website, August 19 is the day the photographic process known as the Daguerreotype was patented in 1839.

周五是世界摄影日。根据世界摄影日网站的信息,8月19日是被称之为银版摄影的照相法在1839年获得专利的日子。

The first World Photo Day was in 2009.

首届世界摄影日是在2009年。

World Photo Day allows people to “celebrate their passion for photography.”

世界摄影日让人们“庆祝他们拍摄的激情。”

On World Photo Day, many people are posting their favorite photos with the hashtag #worldphotoday. That includes photos from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

在世界摄影日这天,许多人用世界摄影日这个标签发布他们喜欢的照片,这其中就包括来自里约奥运会的照片。

One photo many people liked came from the qualifying part of the men’s 200-meter race. Sprinter Usain Bolt of Jamaica was pictured smiling as he crossed the finish line ahead of the other runners.

很多人都喜欢的一张照片来自男子200米资格赛。牙买加短跑名将博尔特被拍到在领先其他选手越过终点线时微笑着。

Many people wondered how photographers were able to catch such an image.

许多人都想知道摄影师如何能够捕捉到这种画面。

Another great photo came from a women’s wrestling gold medal match. Japanese wrestler Risako Kawai celebrated her victory in the 63-kilogram class by throwing her coach to the floor. It was a surprising and different way to celebrate.

另一张伟大的照片来自女子摔跤决赛。日本摔跤手川井梨纱子将她的教练摔倒在地板上来庆祝自己在63公斤级别摔跤比赛上的胜利。这是一种令人惊讶和与众不同的庆祝方式。

Many wrestlers lift their coach up onto their shoulders instead. But do not worry, Kawai did that, too.

与此不同的是,很多摔跤手会将教练扛到肩头。但是不用担心,川井梨纱子也这样做了。

Earlier in the week, another image from Rio caught the world’s attention. During a 5-kilometer race, American runner Abby D’Agostino and Nikki Hamblin of New Zealand had an accident. The runners’ feet touched and both athletes fell to the ground.

本周早些时候,来自里约的另一张照片吸引了全世界的关注。在5000米跑的比赛中,美国选手阿比·达戈斯蒂诺(Abby D'Agostino)和新西兰的尼克·汉布林(Nikki Hamblin)出意外了。两人的脚碰到一块都摔倒在地。

Both Hamblin and D’Agostino looked hurt. But they helped each other up and kept running. It turned out D’Agostino had a severe knee injury. She crossed the finish line far behind the other runners. D’Agostino was not able to continue in the Olympics.

汉布林和达戈斯蒂诺似乎都受伤了。但是她们互相搀扶着继续往前跑。结果表明达戈斯蒂诺受了严重膝伤。她冲过终点线时远远落后于其他选手。达戈斯蒂诺无法继续参加奥运会。

Many people said the picture of the two women helping each other up was the perfect example of the Olympic spirit.

很多人表示,这两名女子运动员互相扶起来的照片是奥林匹克精神的完美典范。

Another dramatic moment came in the women’s 400-meter race. Allyson Felix of the United States was in the lead with just a few meters to go. But at the last second, Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas dove over the finish line to win the gold medal.

另一个戏剧性时刻出现在女子400米比赛。美国的埃里森·菲利克斯(Allyson Felix)在只剩几米时还领先。但是巴哈马的肖娜·米勒(Shaunae Miller)最后一秒,以一个鱼跃俯冲越过了终点线并获得金牌。

Miller’s dive was legal, and she became the Olympic champion.

米勒的鱼跃俯冲合乎规则,所以她成为了奥运冠军。

Of course, no World Photo Day would be complete without people sharing photos of their cats. So here is a photo of a cat in bed.

当然,如果没人分享猫的照片,世界摄影日将是不完整的。所以以下是一张猫在床上的照片。

And that’s What’s Trending Today.
