影片对白 A brand new diary
Skydiving is a team sport. Two people are in the
team, a skydiver and a video camera operator. The video camera operator
videotapes the skydiver while the skydiver does gymnastics. After they've
landed, the judge watches the videotape. The team gets point for good gymnastics
in the air and good skydiving.
A time for self-improvement
Many Americans prefer recreation that requires a high level of physical
activity. This is true of three fastest growing adult recreational sports:
jogging or running, tennis, and snow skiing. It would seem that Americans carry
over their belief in hard work into their world of play and recreation. The
well-known expression "we like to work hard and play hard" is an example of this
The recreational interests of Americans also show a continuing respect for
the self-reliance, and sometimes the adventure and danger, of frontier life. By
the mid-1990s, Newsweek magazine noted that adventure travel had grown to "an＄8
billion business, perhaps as much as a fifth of the U.S.leisure travel market."
Millions of Americans have bought mountain bikes to explore the wildness on
their own. Many others are choosing to go whitewater rafting, mountain climbing,
rock climbing, skydiving, helicopter skiing, and bungee jumping.
