Humphries said this achievement opens the door for other young girls and women.

漢弗萊斯說,這一成就為其他年輕女孩和女性打開了大門。

"The women before me have allowed this to happen and I want to make sure that continues for all future generations."

“在我之前的女性已經允許這種情況發生,我想確保這能在所有后來者中繼續下去?!?

Meyers Taylor called it "historic."

邁耶斯·泰勒稱這是“具有歷史意義的”。

This is not the first time Humphries and Meyers Taylor have shared the podium. The duo have medaled three prior times in the two-woman bobsled event going back to the 2010 Vancouver Games. The Beijing Winter Games are their fourth appearance at the Olympics.

這不是漢弗萊斯和邁耶斯·泰勒第一次一起站上領獎臺。兩人在2010年溫哥華奧運會的雙人雪橇比賽中曾三次獲得獎牌。北京冬季奧運會是他們第四次參加奧運會。

This is Humphries' first Olympics representing Team USA. The 36-year-old previously competed and medaled for Canada, but left following a harassment complaint against the country's bobsled and skeleton team. She previously won gold for Team Canada in the two-woman bobsled event in 2010 and 2014 and bronze for the same event at the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics.

這是漢弗萊斯第一次代替美國隊出戰。這位36歲的球員曾為加拿大隊參加比賽并獲得獎牌,但在接到對該國有舵雪橇和俯式冰撬隊的騷擾投訴后,她離開了隊伍。此前,她為加拿大隊在2010年和2014年贏得女子雙人有舵雪橇項目的金牌,并且在2018年平昌冬奧會的該項目上奪得銅牌。

"This one does feel more emotional for me. Although each Olympic journey has been different, I've had to choose to walk away from my original birth nation," Humphries said. "I've had to fight. There have been a lot of people that have tried to stand in my way. And there have been a lot of obstacles to get to this point."

“這枚獎牌讓我感到更加激動。雖然每次奧運之旅都不同,但是我不得不選擇離開我最初的出生國?!?漢弗萊斯說道?!拔也坏貌粦鸲?。許多人試圖阻止我。取得現在這個成績,一路上有很多的阻礙?!?

The 37-year-old Meyers Taylor won silver for the U.S. in 2018 and 2014 and won bronze at the 2010 Vancouver Games, also for the two-woman bobsled event.

37歲的邁耶斯·泰勒也在女子雙人有舵雪橇項目上,為美國奪得了2018年和2014年的銀牌,并且在2010年的溫哥華冬奧會贏得了銅牌。

Humphries was the favorite leading into the competition after winning the 2021 World Championship for monobob in Altenberg, Germany. She maintained her top performance during the two days of competition. She laid down the fastest two runs on Sunday at Yanqing National Sliding Center.

在2021屆德國阿爾滕貝格雪車世界杯奪得冠軍后,漢弗萊斯是最受歡迎的參賽選手。在兩天的比賽中,她保持了她的最佳表現。周日,她在延慶國家雪車雪橇中心跑出了最快的兩次。

On Monday, Humphries completed her run with a total time of 4:19.27.

周一,漢弗萊斯以4分19秒27的總成績完成了她的比賽。

Meyers Taylor was running fourth going into Monday's competition. But by executing the fastest start time of the final round — 5.62 seconds — she bypassed Canada's de Bruin. A final run placed her right behind Humphries with a total time of 4:20.81.

邁耶斯·泰勒在周一的比賽中排名第四名。但她憑借著最后一輪最快的啟動時間——5.62秒——繞過了加拿大的德布魯因。最后一輪中,她以總成績4分20秒81落后于漢弗萊斯。

Meyers Taylor's achievement is even more notable given she nearly lost out on the chance to participate at these Olympics entirely. She tested positive for COVID-19 shortly after arriving in Beijing and was placed in isolation. She finally tested negative after days spent in her hotel room.

邁耶斯·泰勒甚至更加引人注目,因為她幾乎完全失去了參加比賽的資格。她在到達北京后便被檢測出了Covid-2019陽性,并被隔離了起來。她在酒店房間待了幾天后,最終檢測陰性。

She said she was emotionally and mentally drained from that experience and felt unprepared before the competition.

她說那次經歷讓她在情感上和精神上都筋疲力盡,在比賽前她感到毫無準備。

"My runs showed it, my runs were just terrible and I just couldn't clear my head," she said. "There was so much fog in my head from everything that had been going on. I was really questioning whether I should come out."

“我的一系列表現證明了這一點。我的表現太糟糕了,我只是沒辦法使我的頭腦清醒,“她說道?!睂τ诎l生的一切我感到非常的迷茫。我真的懷疑我是否應該出戰?!?

With the help of her support system, she pushed through.

在她的決策支持系統的幫助下,她順利完成了比賽。

"Thanks to my team. Thanks to everybody. They lifted me up and they lifted me up to silver medal."

“感謝我的隊伍,感謝所有人,他們鼓勵我,讓我獲得了銀牌?!?br />
