Fun skiing event in Siberia - level 2
Russians in Siberia put on costumes and took part in an unusual winter sporting event. At the event, participants ski down a hill and jump into a cold pool of water. The goal is to slide across the pond.
This year, 111 people of ages from 9 to 68 joined the competition, but only seven people managed to slide across the pond to the finish. Others ended up in the cold water.
This is a positive show for fun. One boy has a different costume every year. This time, he dressed as Spider Man. Next time, he will wear something different.
Difficult words: costume (clothes which make you look like a different person), participant (a person who participates in something – does something), slide (move).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
