Cliff diving in Portugal - level 1
A competition happens in Portugal. It is the Red Bull Cliff Diving Competition. People jump off of a cliff. They do some tricks when they fall. Then they go into the water.
It is not easy to jump well. The jumpers must be ready. They must think only about their jumps. Around 2,000 people watch the competition. An American man wins. He is 29 years old. A man from Columbia gets second place.
Difficult words: competition (situation when people try to be better than others at something), cliff (high rock which is close to the sea), dive (jump into the water).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
