Dozens of mountain bikers in a race in Norway have fallen sick most likely due to spray from sheep droppings on their path, Norwegian media reported Wednesday.

 

挪威媒體週三報導,挪威的一場越野自行車比賽的數十名選手生病,最可能的原因是賽道上的羊屎噴濺物。

 

Of the 300 cyclists who took part in the Transosterdalen race at the end of June in southeastern Norway, at least 50 were struck with fever, stomach pain and diarrhoea in the days following the competition, according to public broadcaster NRK.

 

根據公共電視台NRK,參與今年6月底於挪威東南部舉行的Transosterdalen比賽的300名自行車選手中,至少50人在完賽後發燒、胃痛與腹瀉。

 

"This is most likely a Campylobacter infection," race doctor Tor Halvor Bjornstad-Tuveng told NRK, referring to a bacteria which is present in the intestines of many animals.

 

「很可能是曲狀桿菌感染」,該比賽的醫生畢卓斯坦—帝文告訴NRK,意指一種存在於許多動物腸道內的細菌。

 

He said material from the sheep droppings, which have decomposed during heavy rain and projected on the bikers’ route, must have sprayed onto their bottles, faces and hands as they rode by.

 

他說,一定是在大雨中分解與噴散於自行車比賽路徑上的羊屎,在選手們騎經(該路段)時噴到他們的水壺、臉與手上。

 

"In particular, if the faeces are fresh and in large quantities," Bjornstad-Tuveng said, "they can splatter on their bottles in such a way that they ingest it when they drink". AFP

 

「特別是倘若這些排泄物還新鮮且量大」,畢卓斯坦—帝文說,「它們(排泄物)會濺潑到他們(自行車手)的水瓶,以致他們(選手)喝水時吃下。」(法新社)
