Helen: 请留意馆员 Anne Braybon 的介绍， 她提到 record 记录，unique 独一无二的。
It is an incredibly important record of the absolutely, well almost, unique moment in the history of the country – of the capital obviously but also the whole country's been pulled into this, I think very successfully.
Helen: Anne 认为这次展览的主要目的是起到记载历史的作用 an important record. 奥运不只是属于伦敦，整个英国都被奥运带动起来了，the whole country has been pulled into it.
Rob: What about other people at the exhibition launch? What did they think about the photographs?
Helen: 残疾运动员 Andy Barrow 训练时的照片也在肖像馆展出，他很兴奋的说：
I think they've got all the raw energy there. It is a contact sport and we are proud of that fact – it's one of main the selling points – and the picture just screams that out really.
Rob: Andy plays for the GB wheelchair rugby squad and he was photographed with his team-mate Mandip Sammi. He said the photographs show raw energy.
Helen: 展示出原始的能量 raw energy. Andy 是橄榄球运动员，但是他们参赛时都坐轮椅。 轮椅 wheelchair.
Rob: Even though the players are in wheelchairs, the game is still very much a contact sport and it's very intense.
Helen: 接触性运动 a contact sport. 很紧张剧烈 very intense.
Rob: Andy said that the pictures reflect the intensity of rugby and he used the phrase 'to scream out'. It means to be very obvious, immediately understood.
Helen: It's a great phrase. Scream 的原意是大叫，尖叫， 不过在这个短语里，意思是最明显的，突出的，something screams out at you. 我们再听一遍 Andy 的感想。
I think they've got all the raw energy there. It is a contact sport and we are proud of that fact – it's one of the main selling points – and the picture just screams that out really.
The stadium's about a mile from where I live and I was very proud of East London, very proud of London.
Rob: Now let's hear from Danny Boyle who was at the gallery opening. The acclaimed film director is also the creative director of London 2012.

The stadium's about a mile from where I live and I was very proud of East London, very proud of London. London has given me extraordinary opportunities in my life, really, quite extraordinary really. And it's responsible for everything I've done really in one form or other. So we wanted to, we wanted to reflect that.
Helen: 反映什么东西 to reflect something. 我们听到 Danny 说起伦敦给他带来了不平凡的机遇 extraordinary opportunities. 他为伦敦感到骄傲 proud of London. 他今天的成功来自于伦敦创造的机会。
