Longest basketball match - level 1
Some people from the Philippines set a new record. They play basketball for 120 hours, 1 minute and 7 seconds. That is more than five days long.
They play for the five days non-stop. It is not easy. They are under stress. They must not leave the basketball court.
The pain in their bodies disappears at the end of the match. All the players are very happy.
Difficult words: court (area for playing games), disappear (go away).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
