Module 5 The Great Sports Personality Section Ⅰ Introduction & Reading-Pre-reading
For the first time, a Chinese player, Andong Song, has been picked by the New York Islanders in the NHL (National Hockey League) draft (选秀大会)．
Andong Song started playing hockey (冰球) in Beijing when his mother was trying to find him a sport. Once his talent was found, his family moved to Canada and he quickly improved after he began playing there as a 10yearold.
The fact that he's made it this faris something in itself.
When his family moved to Ontario and coaches there heard that a Chinese boy was trying out, there was plenty of doubt. He proved himselfat each level.
18yearold Andong plays on one of China's national teams. “I'm really honored to bethe first Chinese player to be drafted，” he said.
“Being the first Chinese player, there's been a lot of pressure from people back home, but good pressure，” Andong said.“I hope it will motivate (激励) me to become a better player and hopefullyI'll make them proud.”
“When I started playing, there weren't a lot of people playing hockey in China and not much support for the game，” said Andong, whose brother still plays in Beijing.“But last year when I went back, it'd been like eight years since I'd seen Chinese hockey, and it was amazing. I'm sure China will keep trying to catch up withNorth America and Europe and Russia, but there's still a little gap (差距)．”

课时跟踪练(一) Introduction & Reading — Pre-reading
“Football is a very shortterm career. Football really prepares you for almost nothing. The only thing I got out of football was the ability to work hard，” says Gales Sayers. So what do you do after your glory days on the field are over? Here's what one of the top players, Gales Sayers, did after he_put_down_the_pigskin.
Gales Sayers: 40, Chicago Bears, Running Back.
Gales Sayers became famous in 1965. After recovering from a serious knee injury in 1968, Sayers returned to the Bears in 1969 and was awarded the George Halas Award as “the most courageous player in professional football”. At the award ceremony, he owed his prize to his friend and teammate Brian Piccolo who was dying of cancer.
Sayers couldn't get away from the injuries, though, and another blow to his t an end to his football career in 1971. His personal life was unfortunate as well, as he and his wife, Linda, split up that year. Shortly after that, Sayers started a new life and career as an assistant athletic director in the University of Kansas. By 1976 he was moving up the ladder at Southern Illinois University, becoming the first AfricanAmerican athletic director at a major university.
Sayers started a computer supplies company in 1984 with his second wife, Ardie, whom he married in 1973. The couple was looking for a field with a future, and computers seemed to have it all. Seventeen years later, the company that bears his name is a national provider of technology solutions, with 10 locations and over 350 employees across the country. Just like in the old days the honors started rolling in. Sayers was listed into the Chicago Area Entrepreneurship (企业家) Hall of Fame in 1999.
1．What does the underlined sentence “he put down the pigskin” in Paragraph 1 mean?
A．Sayers ended his football career.
B．Sayers was too tired to go on playing.
C．Sayers intended to start a new career.
D．Sayers only wanted to test for some time.
解析：选A 句意猜测题。前句“after your glory days on the field are over”指辉煌过后，下文叙述的也是他足球生涯结束后的发展，所以A项正确。
2．How many times was Sayers honored in his life?
A．Only once as a football star.
B．Only once as a businessman.
C．Twice in all.
D．We are not quite sure.
解析：选C 推理判断题。通读全文可总结出他第一次是获得足球职业中的“the George Halas Award”，第二次是获得“Chicago Area Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame”，故选C。
3．Sayers started his new career mainly because of _______？
A．the first knee injury in 1968
B．his unfortunate personal life
C．another more serious knee injury
D．a friend's being deadly ill
解析：选C 推理判断题。由第四段第一句中的“another blow to his t an end to his football career”可知，膝盖再次受伤导致他足球生涯的终结，这也是他新事业的开始。
4．What can be learned from this passage?
A．Football players are not successful all the time.
B．A successful businessman should be a ball player first.
C．A retired football player can easily make money.
D．Whatever you do, working hard is the most important.

As a child, she persuaded her parents to let her take flying lessons. By 12, Betty made her first flight alone, though not legally permitted to do so until she turned 16
