Fiji’s First Medal – level 2

19-08-2016 07:00

The Pacific nation of Fiji won its first Olympic medal in Men’s Rugby. The team did an amazing job. It beat Great Britain 43-7 and prompted Fiji’s prime minister to declare a public holiday.

Crowds of people came to bars, shopping centres and the national stadium to watch the match. Everyone was ecstatic when the team won.

A British Coach trained the team. He spoke about the team and how happy he was that he could help them win.

Difficult words: prompt (make), declare (formally say that something is now true), ecstatic (extremely happy).

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