Jean-Claude Van Damme - level 2
Jean-Claude Van Damme has performed thousands of splits throughout his career. The splits have become his signature move.
However, he performed a split recently which was quite unique. He stood on two side mirrors of two trucks that were moving. The trucks were close to each other at first, but then they started to open up. When the distance between them was big enough, the split was performed.
The video was made to promote Volvo trucks, and it has become very popular on the internet.
Difficult words: split (when one leg is far from the second leg), signature (something that represents you), open up (get farther from each other), promote (draw attention).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
