I was there because of Billy Jean King promoting an HBO special about women in sports called“Dare to compete.” It was about Title IX and how we finally, thanks to government action,provided opportunities to girls and women in sports.

我去那儿是因为比利·琼·金要在家庭影院频道宣传一个名为“敢于竞争”的体育节目。这个节目旨在宣传“第九项体育运动”,宣扬在政府的帮助下女性最终获得了参加体育比赛的机会。

And although I played not very well at intramural sports, I have always been a strong supporter of women in sports. And I was introduced by this young woman, and as I went to shake her hand she obviously had been reading the newspapers about people saying I should or shouldn’t run for the Senate. And I was congratulating her on the speech she had just made and she held onto my hand and she said, “Dare to compete, Mrs. Clinton. Dare to compete.”

尽管在学校时我并不擅长体育运动,但我非常支持女性参加体育运动。经别人的介绍,我认识了这位年轻女士。我前去跟她握手,而她显然已经在报纸上看到了有关人们讨论我该不该参加竞选的报道。我在对她刚刚的成功演讲表示祝贺时,她紧紧握住我的手,对我说,“要敢于竞争,克林顿夫人。要敢于竞争。”

I took that to heart because it is hard to compete sometimes, especially in public ways, when your failures are there for everyone to see and you don’t know what is going to happen from one day to the next. And yet so much of life, whether we like to accept it or not, is competing with ourselves to be the best we can be, being involved in classes or professions or just life,where we know we are competing with others.

我牢牢记住了她的话,因为有时候竞争真的很残酷,特别是通过公开方式进行竞争,因为在那种情况下你的失败人人可见,而且你不知道接下来的一天天会发生什么。然而,这就是生活,不管我们愿意接受与否,我们总是在不断挑战自我,力争做到最好。无论是在学校还是在职场甚至是在生活中,我们也都在和别人竞争。

I took her advice and I did compete because I chose to do so. And the biggest choices thatyou’ll face in your life will be yours alone to make.

我采纳了她的建议,参加了竞选,因为我已经做出了这样的决定。最重要的选择必须由自己来抉择。
