Children’s race in Ecuador - level 1
Here is some news from Ecuador. People organise a race. It is for children. It happens in a city.
The children put on protective gear and get into carts. These carts are home-made. The children then go down a hill.
The carts go up to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometres per hour). Fifty children race this year. They must be between 6 and 16 years old. This race is not very safe, but everybody is fine.
Difficult words: race (a sports event when you try to be the fastest), protective gear (things which you wear for protection), cart (something like a small car).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Would you take part in the race if you were a child?
