今日小常識

This year's UK Cold Water Swimming Championships saw 600 swimmers brave the near-freezing waters at a lido in South London. There are a number of 'lidos', or outdoor swimming pools, in London and around the UK. The word comes from an Italian word meaning 'beach'.

有600名游泳愛好者參加了在南倫敦一個戶外游泳池裏舉行的「英國冬泳賽」。這個戶外游泳池裏的水接近冰點。在英國很多城市,包括倫敦都有這樣的 「lido」戶外游泳池。「Lido」 一詞來源於意大利語,意思是海灘。
