Helicopter opens a bottle - level 2
More than twenty helicopter pilots competed in the Helicopter Tournament in China.
One of the challenges they had was to open a bottle. But not with a bottle opener in your hand, of course.
The bottle was on top of a pole and the bottle opener was on the helicopter’s side. Each pilot had to open five bottles in eight minutes. The pilot who opened the most bottles and didn’t break the glass won. The winner was a pilot from Henan Province. He opened three bottles.
tournament (competition with more teams)
challenge (something which is difficult to do)
pole (long and thin piece of wood or metal).
