Fun skiing event in Siberia - level 1

Fun skiing event in Siberia - level 1

24-04-2015 15:00

People organise an event in Sibera. The event happens every year. It is for winter sporting. It is an event for fun.

People put on costumes. They ski down a hill. Then they jump into a pool of water. They must slide across the pool.

This year, 111 people try. Only seven people slide to the finish. Others stop in the water.

One boy has a different costume every year. This year, he skies as Spider Man. Next year, he will wear something different.

Difficult words: costume (clothes which make you look like a different person), slide (move on water), will (this means “in the future”).

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