Estonian trio to Rio – level 1
This news is about female triplets. They are from Estonia. All three do sports. They are going to Rio this summer. They will run in the marathon. They will be the first triplets at the Olympics.
The sisters are born moments after each other. The oldest one is also the fastest, and the youngest one is the slowest.
The sisters say that Kenyan and Ethiopian runners are very good. They are not as good as them. They might be as good as them in 2 or 3 years.
Difficult words: triplets (three children born at the same time), will (in the future), to be born (to leave the mother’s body), might (can; it is possible).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
