    嗨,牛奶:

    僅摘錄「維基百科(英文)」對「拔河」的「起源」的說明:

    The origins of tug of war are not clearly known. But there is evidence that tug of war was practiced in ancient China and Egypt[citation needed]. There is an extensive, though unsourced, history of tug of war at the Web site of the United States Tug-o-War Association ( USATOWA http://usatowa.homestead.com/ ), which discusses tug of war in many ancient and medieval cultures as well as suggesting that modern tug of war was popularized and spread via the British navy and other military branches throughout the British Empire and in the United Kingdom during the nineteenth century.

    該百科對「拔河」的解釋,也摘錄如下:

    Tug of war, tug o' war, or tug war, also known as rope pulling, is a sport that directly pits two teams against each other in a test of strength.

    Two teams of eight, whose total mass must not exceed a maximum weight determined for the class, align themselves at the end of a rope (approximately 10 centimetres in circumference). The rope is marked with a "centre line" and two markings four metres either side of the centre line. The teams start with the rope's centre line directly above a line marked on the ground, and once the contest (the "pull") has commenced, attempt to pull the other team such that the marking on the rope closest to their opponent crosses the centre line, or the opponents commit a foul (such as a team member sitting or falling down).

    A contest may feature a moat in a neutral zone, usually of mud or softened ground, which eliminates players who cross the zone and/or fall in.

    There are tug of war clubs in many countries, and both men and women participate.

    祝 拔河成功
