Cliff diving in Portugal - level 2

Cliff diving in Portugal - level 2

05-08-2014 15:00

The Red Bull Cliff Diving Competition took place in Portugal recently. Around 2,000 spectators watched it.

The competitors had to be prepared and they concentrated only on their jumps. The results were spectacular. A 29 year-old American man won. A man from Columbia was second.

Difficult words: spectator (person who watches an event), concentrate (to think about one thing only), spectacular (amazing).

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

Have you ever jumped off a cliff?
