How to enjoy the Olympics in English

The Olympics are coming up, and if you want to get the full scoop on what’s happening in everything from the pole vault to ping pong, you’ll need to polish up your English.

While the Olympics are a world wide event with athletes speaking almost all the world’s languages, it’s worth learning some English related to the games. Not only will you be able to talk about the games with people from around the world, but many phrases from the Olympics have become well known English metaphors and figures of speech.

Go for gold!

Everyone knows the top three athletes or teams in each event win the gold, silver, and bronz medals. But did you know that the phrase “go for the gold” has now become a standard phrase meaning to try to do your best.

Pass the torch

The torch relay is another enduring symbol of the Olympic spirit, and it too has become a commonly used English metaphor. Just like the Olympic runners pass the torch to each other without ever letting it drop, “pass the torch” is often used when handing over responsibilities to someone new. If someone replaces you as a club secretary or branch manager, for example, people will often say “You’ve passed the torch to your replacement”.

Who’s the favorite?

When you’re actually watching the games or talking about what happened, there are some specific sports phrases to keep in mind. The athlete who everyone expects to win an event is the “favorite”, but if he or she is actually beaten by someone unexpected, that’s called an “upset”.(Note that in this case, the stress is on the first syllable, i.e. UP-set).
