A 15-year-old girl who pedalled her injured migrant-worker father more than a thousand kilometres across India after a coronavirus lockdown left them destitute has been invited to try out for the national cycling team.

印度封城期间,一名15岁的印度女孩骑行一千多公里载父亲返乡。印度国家自行车联合会得知其事迹后,邀请她参加印度自行车国家队的选拔试训。

Jyoti Kumari rode a bicycle with her father, Mohan Paswan, sitting on the pillion and holding their belongings from Gurugram city, near New Delhi, to their village in the northeastern state of Bihar, local media reported.

据当地媒体报道,乔蒂·库马里骑自行车载着其父莫汉·帕斯万,从新德里附近古鲁格拉姆出发,返回位于比哈尔邦东北部的村庄。

They arrived home on May 16 after covering 1,200 kilometres (745 miles) in seven days.

7天内骑行1200公里(745英里),他们于5月16日到家。

Paswan, a motorised rickshaw driver, was among millions of migrant workers left jobless after the country was suddenly locked down in March to slow the spread of the virus.

今年3月,为了减缓疫情的蔓延,印度政府突然下来封城,导致数百万民工失业,乔蒂的父亲帕斯万就是其中之一。帕斯万是一名电动三轮摩托车司机。

With no money to pay rent or buy food and public transport halted, many walked or -- like Kumari and Paswan -- rode bicycles back to their villages.

没钱支付房租、购买食物,加上公共交通也停运了,很多民工徒步返乡或像乔蒂和帕斯万一样骑自行车返回农村老家。

The father and daughter's arduous journey on a second-hand bike bought with their remaining funds made headlines.

这对父女用最后的积蓄买了一辆二手自行车,他们的艰辛旅程成了头条新闻。

It also caught the attention of the Cycling Federation of India, which offered Kumari the chance to try out for the country's team.

此事也引起了印度自行车联合会的注意,该联合会为库马里提供了参加印度自行车队选拔的机会。

"She covered this distance in seven days with her father and some luggage too. I thought she has something in her... that endurance level. We can try her," chairman Onkar Singh told AFP.

印度自行车联合会辛格主席告诉法新社:“乔蒂在7天里载着父亲和行李骑了这么长的距离,耐力不错,我们可以给她一个机会。”

"She said she only wants to pursue her studies. We told her that we also take care of studies at our academies."

“乔蒂说她只想上学,但我们告诉她,我们有学校可以让她继续学习。”

The cycling body expects Kumari to travel to Delhi after nationwide travel restrictions are lifted.

在全国解封后,印度自行车联合会希望库马里能去德里一趟。

Singh said the federation would test Kumari to see if she is suitable for competitive cycling.

辛格说,联合会将对乔蒂进行测试,以确定她是否适合参加自行车比赛。

Ivanka Trump, the daughter of US President Donald Trump, praised Kumari's efforts in a tweet, describing it as a "beautiful feat of endurance & love."

美国总统唐纳德·特朗普的女儿伊万卡在推特上赞扬了乔蒂的行为,称之为“爱的壮举”。

Excellent dedication shown by young Jyoti Kumari. That is an extremely long distance to haul that, umm, large of a load on a bicycle.

乔蒂小小年纪却表现出了奉献精神,载着一个大人还有行李骑了那么远的距离。

That’s the best thing I’ve heard all day

Now who needs a son when he has 1 of 4 daughters that can bike 106 in 1 day for 7 days with excess baggage. Unbelievable

骑了7天,载着一个大人外加行李,真是难以置信。女儿这么能干,谁还想要儿子。
