Sports arena is not just fighting and killing, but also adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing behind
China News Service Client, Beijing, June 22 (Wang Hao) In the early morning of the 22nd, Beijing time, in the final round of Group C of the European Cup, Denmark beat Russia 4:1, winning two in three games. With a loss of 3 points, he made a thrilling advancement to the top 16 with a goal difference advantage.
After the final whistle sounded , A slightly funny scene appeared on the court. The Danish players who just won the game did not celebrate, but gathered in a circle and watched nervously as the staff swiped their phones. They were waiting for the result of the match between Belgium and Finland.
In the end, Belgium defeated Finland 2:0, sending an “assist” for Denmark to advance. It can only be said that fortunately, this stadium has a good network speed. If the signal is not good, the Danish players still don’t know what to do…
In points-based sports events, the spectators must not only have the home team’s In addition to the fearful performance, some people are forced to learn mathematics. After all, the difference in points by one point may result in very different results. It is comedy that gets good results after nervous waiting like Denmark, and it is tragedy that celebrates in advance but is killed by one point.
2008 F1 Grand Prix The suspense of the hand championship lasted until the last stop-Brazil. The 71st lap race was full of twists and turns. The rain that started midway forced the teams to temporarily change their strategies. Some cars pitted and changed rain tires, and some insisted on using dry tires.
In the end, Ferrari driver Massa won the Brazilian championship by an absolute advantage. Brazil is Massa’s hometown. After Massa crossed the line, the fans and his family and friends were very excited.
However, McLaren driver Hamilton surpassed Toyota driver Glock at the last minute to take fifth place in Brazil, and won the driver of the year from Massa by one point in the overall standings. champion.
For this transcendence, there has been a lot of controversy to this day. Some media directly pointed out in reports that Glock “gave the car”, although Glock himself denied this. Some media believe that Glock, who used dry tires, just made a serious mistake.
That is the Massa profession At the closest moment of his career to the drivers championship, he announced his retirement in 2017. He also failed to win this honor. Some people ridicule that he was only a half-lap driver’s championship, and I don’t know how Massa would feel when he thinks of that race.
Of course, looking at Glock’s F1 career, the Brazilian Grand Prix of that year was also his closest moment to the “Drivers Championship”. Who can think of the story of two people competing for the championship, but the ending is written by a “third party”?
Different from football and F1 games, because in most cases a single basketball game has only two results, the basketball game generally compares not the points, but the net wins when calculating the line quota. Minute.
In 2019, the Men’s Basketball World Cup will be held in China. In the case of a lottery and signing in the group stage, the performance of the host Chinese men’s basketball team was disappointing. From the very beginning, the fans hoped that the Chinese men’s basketball team would hit the quarterfinals and semifinals, and finally they hoped that they would get Olympic tickets.
but in qualifying In China, the Chinese men’s basketball team lost to Nigeria 73:86, and Iran beat the Philippines 95:75 in a game at the same time. Iran became the best Asian team by virtue of its total points difference and won the Tokyo Olympics. Pass-through qualification.
The score calculation process in this game was not too dramatic, but it left a deep impression on the fans. Once upon a time, we counted our opponents in the knockout games of the Olympics, but now we have to count the qualifications for the Olympics?
If the Chinese men’s basketball team is considered to be a scumbag who knows the passing score but can’t reach it, then the Chinese men’s football team once performed a scene where the scumbag “copys the wrong answer” in the open-book exam…
In 2004, in the final round of Group D of the World Cup qualifiers, the Chinese men beat the Hong Kong men’s football team 7-0. Before the start of the game, the national football team knew that they basically needed to rely on a goal difference to qualify, and in the game it was also a posture that surpassed the “standard answer” and launched a fierce attack.
The final whistle sounded After that, the Chinese team that won a big victory looked “stable”, but found out why nothing happened to the Chinese team in the next stage of the game? Later, there were reports that the Chinese team had miscalculated the qualifying conditions, and won 7 goals and could not qualify.
This game has stayed in the hearts of fans for a long time, because it not only reflects the dilemma of the national football team at the time, but also makes people question their own mathematics—addition and subtraction within ten. Is it so difficult for me?
Since childhood, we have memorized many theorems, such as one plus one equals two. These are the basis for our mathematical calculations. However, sometimes, when doing “calculation problems” in sports events, I find that I haven’t even figured out the theorem itself. How do I calculate this?
This year’s CUBA league, there was a very influential rule dispute. In the eight-to-four competition, China University of Mining competed with Peking University. According to regulations, the game adopts a home and away game system. In the first game, Mining University defeated Peking University 83:78.
And in the second scene Before the start of the game, the CUBA official Weibo stated that “the Peking University men’s basketball team returning to the home court must beat the opponent by at least 6 points (5 points in overtime) in order to advance to the semi-finals.”
During the game, In the final stage of the fourth quarter, Peking University had a chance to win the game with free throws, but it was unable to win the game by 6 points. If the game were to be won, the result would be eliminated due to the two-round net disadvantage. Therefore, the Peking University players suspected of deliberately missed free throws and dragged the game into overtime.
Beijing University won the game 99:89 in overtime and advanced to the semi-finals by relying on the advantage of two rounds of winning points.
This game has aroused intense discussion on social media, and many fans questioned whether the second game was tied and entered overtime, and Peking University won 5 points and entered overtime. Is such a rule reasonable?
After the game, CUBA official It has been explained that according to the rules of the competition, there is no situation where a single game ends in a draw. Therefore, the second game requires extra time to determine the relationship between the winners and losers of the game, and then the promotion will be determined based on the total score of the two games. Team. He also said that the joint meeting had confirmed the rules with both teams before the game.
According to the official statement, it can indeed explain what happened in this game. The reason for such a huge controversy is mainly because the details of the pre-match rules have not been announced. Just like a math question done in an exam was judged wrong, and it turned out that some of the standard answers were too big…
Sports competitions have become vivid math questions, in the final analysis, because of its uncertainty. Before the end of the game, “getting out of a tie” may overturn, a big victory may turn into a disappointment, and unexpected factors may disrupt all layouts.
But this is also where the charm of sports lies. Doing your best to win is a more powerful weapon than “calculation”! (End)
