Bizarre sports - level 2
The 38th World Toe Wresting Championship was held in a pub in England. It is not the most renowned sport, but people had a lot of fun.
The competitors’ feet are between two boards. You must make the other person’s ankle touch the other side of the board. Everybody thinks that big toes are an advantage. However, the world champion says that short stubby toes are the best. He says that long toes snap easier.
Another bizarre sport event took place in England. It was the shin-kicking championship. Competitors kick each other in the shins to make the other one fall over.
Difficult words: renowned (famous), stubby (short and thick), snap (catch).
