When the difference between bringing back a medal and leaving the Games empty-handed is measured in hundredths of a second, it pays to keep your eyes on the clock!

Today's Lesson
(RECORD) TIME   タイム、(新)記録


  • An athlete's time in a race is how many seconds, minutes, or hours it takes him or her to finish.

    If an athlete's time is better (= shorter) than anyone else's in the past, we say it is a record time.
  • time は、選手がレースを終えるまでに何秒、何分、または何時間かかったかという記録、つまり、タイムのことです。

    今までの最高タイムよりいい記録が出た場合、それを record time(新記録)と言います。


  1. The first-place finisher's time in the marathon was 2 hours 6 minutes and 5 seconds.
  2. (a short-distance runner)
