>Farewell to 'father of hybrid rice'
送别'杂交水稻之父'袁隆平

China on Monday morning held a memorial service to bid farewell to Yuan Longping, known as the "father of hybrid rice," who passed away on Saturday. Despite being a busy work day, thousands of people dressed in black showed up and laid flowers at the site before the service began at 10 am in Changsha, capital of Central China's Hunan province. The top rice scientist, who in 1973 developed the first high-yield hybrid rice strain, died of organ failure at 91 in Changsha.
我国著名农业科学家、"杂交水稻之父"袁隆平因多器官功能衰竭于5月22日在湖南长沙逝世,享年91岁。5月24日上午10时,袁隆平遗体送别仪式在长沙举行。虽然是繁忙的工作日,但数千群众身着黑衣手持鲜花前来殡仪馆送别袁老。袁隆平是我国首席杂交水稻育种专家,他于1973年成功培育出高产量的籼型杂交水稻。

The agronomist spent over five decades researching and improving hybrid rice, which has reached its third generation, helping China work a great wonder - feeding nearly one-fifth of the world's population with less than 9 percent of the world's total arable land.
50多年来,袁隆平全心致力于研究和改进杂交稻,目前已经培育到了第三代。杂交水稻技术的进步创造了伟大的中国奇迹——我国用不到世界9%的耕地养活了世界近20%的人口。

His lifelong dedication to reducing hunger made him a household name in China, where getting enough to eat was once a serious problem.
在中国,袁隆平是一个家喻户晓的名字,因为他为解决老百姓温饱问题奉献了毕生精力。

In 2019, Yuan was awarded the Medal of the Republic, China's highest state honor.
2019年,袁隆平被授予国家最高荣誉奖"共和国勋章"。

>21 runners die in extreme weather

Twenty-one marathoners-some among China's most promising athletes-died in extreme weather during an annual mountain ultramarathon in Baiyin, Northwest China's Gansu province, local authorities said on Sunday.
5月23日,甘肃省白银市政府表示,在白银市举办的年度山地马拉松百公里越野赛过程中,21名马拉松参赛人员遭遇极端天气后遇难,其中一些是顶尖选手。

Another eight were hospitalized for minor injuries, and the rest were rescued and are safe and sound.
另外,8人轻伤在医院救治,其余参赛人员已被安全救出。

The tragedy came after a round of hail, freezing rain and high winds caught 172 lightly dressed marathon runners off guard on Saturday as they were racing across winding mountainous tracks in the central part of Gansu.
5月22日,在甘肃中部蜿蜒的山地赛道上,172名参赛人员轻装上阵,遭遇冰雹、冻雨和大风袭击时措手不及,悲剧发生。

Local officials said temperatures fell sharply at about 1 pm, when most participants were 20 to 30 kilometers into the 100-km race.
当地官员表示,下午1点左右气温急剧下降,当时大部分参赛人员集中在百公里赛的20至30公里处。

The race was immediately halted as many runners began showing symptoms, including reduced body temperature, they added.

Local authorities said more than 1,200 rescuers had been deployed in the search for the missing.

Poor signal reception in the mountains posed a major challenge during the operation, along with the complex terrain and falling temperatures overnight.

Zhang Xuchen, mayor of Baiyin, said at a news conference on Sunday that he was remorseful and offered "deep condolences" to the families of the victims.
白银市市长张旭晨在5月23日的新闻发布会上说,他深感内疚和自责,并向遇难者家属表示"沉痛哀悼 "。

他将这起悲剧描述为"因局部地区天气突变发生的公共安全事件",并补充说,甘肃省政府已开始就此次事件展开调查。
