德国吃辣世界锦标赛,看谁能吃辣,“吃辣世界锦标赛”英语怎么说?

日前,德国柏林“吃辣世界锦标赛”“火辣”开赛。选手需要依次吃下14盘特别烹制的食物,每盘食物的辣味都依次递增,坚持到最后的选手才能获胜。

我们来看一段相关的英文报道

There is a saying that goes, "Big boys don't cry", but in Berlin at the "Spicy Food World Championship", there were more than one or two men with tears in their eyes.
The challenge of the competition is simple; competitors are set the task to eat all 14 dishes of a specially prepared menu that increased in spiciness with every dish consumed.
The competition started from a joke amongst a group of friends who set themselves the challenge to see who amongst them could eat the hottest chillies. The madcap idea took hold and grew in popularity till it became a serious contest.

有句话说“大男孩不哭”,但在柏林的“吃辣世界锦标赛”上,不止只有一两个大男孩眼里噙着泪水。
比赛的挑战项目很简单,参赛者会拿到一份特别准备的任务菜单并依次吃下这份菜单上的14盘菜,而这14盘菜的辣度会逐盘递增。
这项比赛起源于一群朋友之间开的一个玩笑——较量他们之间谁能吃下最辣的辣椒。这个疯狂的想法慢慢流行开,人气也逐渐增加,直至现在变成了一项认真的竞赛。
