《中英對照讀新聞》Wrong music? Russian biathletes sing correct anthem alone 音樂錯誤?俄羅斯滑雪射擊員自己唱正確的國歌

◎魏國金

Russian biathletes decided to sing their national anthem without any instrumental accompaniment after organizers played an outdated version in an embarrassing medal ceremony at the biathlon world championships.

俄羅斯滑雪射擊運動員在冬季兩項世界錦標賽中一場令人難堪的頒獎典禮上,因主辦單位播放舊版俄國國歌,而決定在沒有任何樂器伴奏下清唱自己的國歌。

The ceremony was interrupted when it became clear that the old version of the anthem was being used to honor Russia’s victory in Saturday night’s 4x7.5-kilometer relay.

當用來表揚週六晚間4人7.5公里接力賽俄國隊勝利的,顯然是舊版俄國國歌後,典禮中斷。

However, Alexey Volkov, Maxim Tsvetkov, Anton Babikov and Anton Shipulin didn’t wait for the correct version to be played and started singing their national anthem unaccompanied.

然而,阿列克謝.沃科夫、梅辛.茨維特科夫、安東.巴比科夫,以及安東.舒普林,不等正確版播放,便開始在無伴奏情況下高唱自己的國歌。

The incident came just one week after the United States Tennis Association had to apologize after a German national anthem used during the Nazi-era was accidentally played at a tennis tournament in Hawaii.

發生這起事件的一週前,美國網球協會在夏威夷舉行的一場網球錦標賽上,因意外演唱納粹時期的德國國歌,而被迫出面致歉。
