今日小常識

According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, evidence of skiing dates back thousands of years. Hundreds of ski parts that are 1,000 to 3,500 years old have been found in Sweden, Norway, and Finland. Also, a 4,000-year-old rock carving depicting skis has been found near the Arctic Circle in Norway.

根據大英百科全書記載,很多證據表明滑雪板運動的歷史可追溯到幾千年前。人們在瑞典、挪威和芬蘭發現了數百個有著一千到三千五百年歷史的滑雪板部件。還在挪威境內靠進北極圈的地方發現了一塊有四千年歷史、刻畫著兩個滑雪板的岩石。
