【Aiden in English】

        Math 24 isn't a well-known game around the globe. It requires skill and speed which I have. This is why I was one of the selective competitors who represented Montgomery to participate Math 24 Tournament among 10 elementary schools in North Penn School District this year.

        On the way, my head was about to explode. If every school had the players like my school, I would be in a sticky situation. But it wasn't the case. Round 1: 43 points; Round 2: 42 points; Round 3: 37 points. Since each deck of cards had 50ish points in total, getting anything around 40 was spectacular in each round. And that was how I won the tournament. Every round, I was in the game on the ball. You may say it "on fire", which was how I felt in the heat of the competition. The 1st place was all mine.

        However, what made this a truly amazing victory was that I toppled the 2nd place by a square 22 points. Yet I wasn't happy too much. Last year, a 6th grader called J. P. held the record with a whopping 131 points. Today, I fell short barely. But I have a chance to challenge what he had archived at his age next year. There is a hope and I will definitely strive to beat his record. I know I will.

【红霞译文】

        在全世界范围内,口算24点并非广为流传。它既讲究技巧,又追求速度,正因为我恰好具备两方面优势,所以我有资格代表蒙哥马利小学参加北宾州学区十所小学共同举行的2014年口算24点锦标赛。

        比赛期间,我的脑袋紧张得快要炸开似的,说真格的,如果每所小学都像本校选手实力雄厚,我定会困难重重,可现场状况完全不是这样。第一轮回合﹕我得了43分﹔第二轮回合:我得了42分﹔第三轮回合:我得了37分,总计122分。因为每一轮所有题卡加起来总积分是五十多分,所以能够得到四十分上下应该算蛮不错的成绩,而这正好反映出我是怎样赢得该场比赛的,各个回合我都争取主动。你也许会说我玩得很溜,实际上我确实非常投入,因此第一名非我莫属。

        然而,最为突出的较量结果是我比第二名高出22分,不过我略感美中不足。去年,一位初中一年级名叫JP的选手创下131分最好成绩,而今天我的分数比他差了一点,兴许明年等我像他那么大的时候,还有机会再度挑战记录,怀揣期待并做好准备,相信我能如愿以偿。
