Cold-water chess - level 1
This news is about chess. There is a special version of chess. It is cold-water chess. You play chess, and you sit in very cold water.
The game is not new. Some people played in Soviet times. Now, two Russian men play it again.
The game can look a little crazy. But the men like it. They say that cold water helps you concentrate. Playing chess helps you stay in the water for longer.
Difficult words: -ed (in the past), concentrate (to think hard), stay (to be).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
