hi there my name is Emma thank you for clicking
today's lesson is on vocabulary for the Olympics
so the Olympics happen every four years the summer olympics happen every four
years and the winter olympics happen every two years
so the things that happen quite regularly and as a result this
vocabulary is is pretty important to know if you want to talk about the
so let's get started so first of all the first vocabulary we're going to learn
today are the people of the olympics
so the first word i have here and all of these are announced the first word i
have here is athletic meet
so who are the athletes the athletes are the people who play the sports or who
enter the tournament's so for example David Beckham
he is an example of an athlete
Michael Jordan Luis Suarez yuming there are hundreds of athletes
I could give examples of so these are the athletes
the next word is coach who are the coaches they're almost like the bosses
of the athletes so there
if there's a team the coaches the person who decides who's playing and who's
going to sit out the coach decides how the team will win or how the athlete
will win the sport
so the coach often tries to motivate athletes to do better and their main
goal is to help the team when through strategies and game plan
next we have the trainer so the trainer is a little different than the coach
they work with the athlete to get them into top physical shape
so the athletes are nice strong able to run long distances able to compete well
so the trainer focuses on the athlete's body and getting it up to speed
next we have the word referee also known as the rep so the referee or the Rev is
the the person who usually has a whistle and they make sure that the athletes
follow the rules if the athlete doesn't follow the rules they blow their whistle
and usually give some sort of penalty
so this is the referee the next word we have judge
now a lot of people think judge in sports well a judge is a person who
usually gives marks and in certain events
so you don't find a judge in all events but you do find judges and figure
skating boxing and these types of these types of events where they usually hold
up a sign and with points on it
so 10 points for example finally we have the word spectator
so who are the spectators the spectators are the people who watch the event
so if you've ever gone to a soccer game of baseball game to the Olympics maybe
and you watched people play a sport you are the spectator
so usually during the Olympics there are thousands and thousands of spectators
people watching sports
actually i'm going to add one more word here
fan so fans are there are usually tip of spectator their people who really love a
certain team or a certain player
so are you fans of any athletes are any of you at their huge david beckham fans
or big Michael Jordan band
yuming let me know if you're a fan of any athletes
ok so next we are going to look at places and things of the olympics
so here are some of the places of the olympics and you will hear them
constantly talked about in the news if you're you're reading up on the Olympics
these are really good words to know so these are all nouns as well and so is to
keep that in mind
so the first word we have is the venue so venue
what's a venue it's a very simple word which means a place where an event is
so we don't just use it for sports
we also use it for concerts for any type of event we talk about the venue where
the event is going to take place
so there are different types of venues at the Olympics so venue is almost like
the umbrella term the rest of the words are underneath venue so they're all
types of venues
so the first word we have is stadium so a stadium is a circular building or an
oval shaped building that has a lot of seats usually thousands of seeds and
this is where you sit and you watch different sports take place or or
so in general not that great of a draw a little
just tried to
so you notice it's oval shaped and inside the stadium there would be
thousands of seeds and of course the closer you are to the floor
the better there are some seats near the top these aren't really that good to
have you can't really see anything
sometimes we actually call this the nose lead section
ok I'm so stadiums are often without roofs so often times you can see this
the sky when you're in a stadium now an arena is very similar to the stadium
often the word arena and stadium are used interchangeably
so you can say stadium or arena they usually mean the same thing
although sometimes some people say that an arena has a roof and so it's
completely indoors where as a stadium is outdoors
although again this depends usually they are used interchangeably
so again you could use stadium or an arena to describe this type of building
the next word we have is swimming pool a lot of you probably know this word
it's a venue for the Olympics a lot of sports are water sports and they take
place at the swimming pool
finally we have the word track
so what is a track well it's also this shape and people either run on the track
so they run around other sports take place there too
I with horses for example we have the racetrack where the horses run around
the track or sometimes we have car racing on a track
so all of these use the same word track alright so now let's look at some
objects of the olympics
ok so first of all we have
the torch this is almost the the it's the symbol of the olympics
so what is a torch I can't I don't know if you can tell what this is but this is
supposed to be fire and this is supposed to be like a stick
so the torch is the object that Olympians hold
usually you the torch is taken through many different countries throughout the
people run with the torch from one country to another country to another
so here's an example of what it would look like the next word we have is the
metal now this is the goal of the all the Olympians they want to win a medal
what color do the metals come in at the best one is gold so you can be a gold
medalist and that's what we call somebody who wins the metal a medalist
if you come in second you would be a silver medalist and you would win the
silver metal and for third place
it's bronze the bronze is the third place and you would be a bronze medalist
if you want a third place
next we have the word podium so the podium is this thing these little people
are standing on
so these imagine them as Olympians I know they're kind of skinny for
Olympians but and so usually the person who wins the gold would be at the top of
this part of the podium silver or second place is here and third places here so
this whole thing with the three levels is the podium so after somebody wins an
event they get to go on the podium
smile for the cameras wave to everyone and get awarded with a metal
now let's look at some of the common sports at the Olympics
ok so let's get started on some of the common sports at the Olympics
the first one we have here is weight lifting
so what is weight lifting well i have here what are called barbells
it's when both men and women they lift very heavy weights and whoever lift the
heaviest amount of weights wins the competition
that's weightlifting usually the people in weightlifting they have these huge
the second sport
we're going to talk about wrestling now I i don't know if you can really
understand this picture - well I tried
this is a mat and on this mat there are two people who are wrestling which means
it's a form of fighting and the point of wrestling is to try to get your opponent
on the ground whether i think their shoulders are supposed to touch the
so it's a form of fighting that you often see in the Olympics
ok and in the Olympics
it's different from WWE wrestling a head is it is very different so this is
olympic wrestling
the third one is archery bow archery
here we have the bow and here we have the arrow
so that's where you shoot an arrow from a bow that archery our next sport of
so here i have a boxing glove so this is a type of fighting where people box
after that gymnastics so i've drawn here there are there are different forms of
there are many different types of gymnastics
here's an example we have this beam and we have somebody who's doing a cartwheel
or a flip on this being so it a here we also have the a
the bars where this person is probably going to do some flips up to here
more flips and then they land. These are just two examples of gymnastics
there are many different types hurdles
so hurdles are when somebody runs and there's an obstacle in the way it
usually looks like this and somebody has to jump over it run a little more jump
Jump, run, jump,run, jump
we also use the word hurdles not only when we're talking about the Olympics
but we use it as a synonym for obstacles
so for example i faced many hurdles in my life
so this is a way this is not only Olympic vocabulary
the next part is full so this is actually my favorite Olympic sport
just because I i I've seen people do it it's just it's such an interesting one
for me or you have a long stick and you run with the stick you shove a stick
into the ground and you flip over a very high bar
so if i can choose any Olympic sport to compete and it would be pulled
next we have relay
so this is where you have a team of runners and each one has something
called a baton
so its bigger than this but they hold it behind her back
sorry they hold it behind the bag was sort of awkward to do and somebody comes
I hand some the baton and then they run with a baton and then they run it to the
next person who runs with a baton so it's a type of race where you have
multiple people in the race on your team
finally we have the discus throw the discus this is a circular shaped object
and its its throne
so it's very heavy object that's that's thrown so of course there are many more
olympic sports on this list this is just some of the common summer olympic sports
we have an events so i hope that you found this video interesting and
hopefully you have learned some vocabulary from it
I hope you're watching the upcoming Olympics so if you would like to
