Man and robot - level 2
An Olympic sprinter had his first race of the season. It wasn't against a human though. His opponent was a robot called Brian.
The challenge came after they disagreed on Twitter about who was the fastest runner.
The sprinter lost against the robot because he didn’t know that it would move on wheels. It was a disappointing result for this runner. The sprinter will be running at a World Athletics Championship next month. There will be no robots there.
Interesting words: sprinter (fast runner), though (but), disappointing (not making you happy).
