Bizarre sports - level 1

A championship is held in England. It is the 38th World Toe Wrestling Championship. It is not a famous sport, but people have fun.

People’s feet fight. Their feet are between two boards. You must make the opponent’s foot touch the board. Everybody thinks big toes are good. It is not true. Short toes are good for fighting.

Another sport is held in England. People kick their opponent’s leg. The opponent must fall.

Difficult words: be held (happen), board (flat piece of wood), opponent (person you fight with).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you do any bizarre sport?
