A New Zealand kayaker made the semi-finals of the men's slalom at the Olympics despite being given a two-second penalty by his mother who is a judge at the games.

一位新西蘭皮劃艇選手在男子皮劃艇激流回旋的比賽中遭到了為時兩秒的處罰,而進行這次判罰的本場比賽裁判,正是該選手的媽媽。盡管受罰,他仍然成功挺進半決賽。

Mike Dawson touched gate five when going down the 18-gate Olympic course on Sunday, and his mother, Kay Dawson, did not hesitate to penalise her son. It was one of two two-second penalties Dawson received, but he still advanced to Wednesday's semi-finals.

本屆奧運會中共設置有18個障礙門。在周日的比賽中,麥克·道森觸到了第五個門。此時,他的母親凱·道森毫不猶豫地判罰了自己的兒子。麥克·道森被罰時了兩秒,但他仍然晉級了半決賽。半決賽將在周三進行。

Dawson joked that he was tempted to get his coach to put in a protest "about that particular judge".

麥克·道森開玩笑說,他要找他的教練,來對這個“特殊的裁判”提出抗議。

It would have made dinner time at the Dawsons' even more awkward. His coach is father Les.

這可能會使得道森一家人共聚桌邊的晚餐時間變得尷尬,因為麥克的教練正是他的父親萊斯。

"That would've had all sorts of ramifications after the Olympics and besides, I like mum's cooking too much!" Dawson said.

麥克·道森說:“這有可能讓我們家的關系在奧運會后變得復雜起來。另外,我太喜歡我媽媽燒的菜了!”

Dawson added that Kay's penalty "definitely dispels any hint of bias and I wouldn't have it any other way".

他還補充道,母親凱對他的判罰“毫無疑問消除了偏見,而我也必須接受處罰”。

"Fortunately it was definitely a genuine touch and, of course, she called it right, as I'd expect her to," he said, "though I'll be trying my hardest to keep mum unoccupied in my semi-final run."

“幸運的是,我的確碰到了障礙門,當然她的判罰很正確,我覺得她應該這么判。”麥克說,“但我會盡全力在半決賽中避免失誤,別再讓她罰我了。”

Dawson qualified eighth of the 15 kayakers who made the semi-finals. The 25-year-old Dawson is at his first Olympics, while his mother is at her second after officiating at the 2008 Beijing Games.

麥克在15名進入半決賽的選手中排名第八。這位25歲的選手是第一次參加奧運會,他的母親是第二次在奧運會中執裁,第一次是在2008年北京奧運會上。
