Feifei
这里是 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲,大家好。

Rob
And hello, I’m Rob. Hey, Feifei. Did you see the match last night?

Feifei
The match? No, Rob. I had better things to do!

Rob
Oh, you should have done. My local team beat Manchester United 3-0! It was a giant-killing!

Feifei
Well I'm glad I didn't watch it – who wants to see giants being killed?

Rob
Feifei, nobody was killed and there were no real giants. The giant is the team that is usually stronger, more powerful or skilful than the other team – and the killing happens when the weaker or less skilful team beats them. And that's what happened last night. It was brilliant!

Feifei
I see! 形容词 “giant-killing” 用来描述在体育比赛中较弱的选手或队伍击败比自己水平好很多的强大对手。

Rob
Yep. And we call the winning team 'giant killers' – so my team can now be called 'giant killers'!

Feifei
So is this phrase used for sporting competitions?

Rob
Yes it is. It's not just used in football – although the giant-killing in the game last night was amazing! Did I mention the score was 3-0?

Feifei
OK calm down, Rob. Let's hear some other examples of the phrase 'giant-killing'.

Examples
We're celebrating our village cricket team's giant-killing over a professional county team!

There was a giant-killing at the tennis match today – a brand new player beat the third-seeded player in straight sets!

The non-league team have become giant killers in the FA Cup – they could go all the way to the final.

Feifei
这里是 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。在这集节目中,我们学习的表达是 “giant-killing” 和 “giant killer”。在体育比赛中,当较弱的选手或队伍击败强大的对手时,这种情况就叫做 “giant-killing”,而较弱的这名选手或这支队伍就是 “giant killer”。So a giant-killing is quite an achievement?

Rob
It sure is. It's unexpected but it's great when it happens.

Feifei
I understand, Rob – it comes as a surprise because you're so used to losing!

Rob
Never mind, Feifei. If you're not a football fan, you'll never understand.

Feifei
我觉得咱们的这个节目就有点儿像 “a giant-killing”。

Rob
Why's that then?

Feifei
The weaker, less skilful presenter beats the stronger, more skilful presenter by getting more lines to say in the script.

Rob
Errr, I don't think so, Feifei. You always have more to say.

Feifei
That's true. Now, isn't it your turn to make the tea?

Rob
OK, if you say so. See you later.  

Feifei
Ha! 1-0 to me. Bye.
