今日小常識

Blind and partially sighted runners can compete with a guide. Usually tethered to the athlete by a rope, the guide talks throughout the race, explaining to the athlete where they are on the track, flagging up bends and making a call on whether or not the athlete should accelerate, hold the pace or relax. The golden rule of guide running is not to cross the line before the athlete, a crime punishable by disqualification.

失明和有視覺障礙的田徑運動員參賽時可以依靠一名嚮導。通常與運動員以一根繩子相連,嚮導在旁不停的做解釋,告訴運動員在跑道上的位置,前方是否有彎度,是否需要加速或保持現有速度或放鬆。最關鍵的一點是嚮導不能在運動員之前跨越終點線,否則馬上取消比賽資格。
