Man walks on bottles - level 2

Man walks on bottles - level 2

25-11-2013 14:00

Not just one, but two world records were broken by one person on Thursday.

The German man broke the record for walking on upright bottles. There were 60 of them in a line. The second record was just as interesting. Somebody was playing darts and the German was standing in front of the target. He caught the darts. He managed to catch 16 with his hands in one minute.

The man was very happy with his success and encouraged others to beat his records.

Difficult words: upright (standing straight up), darts (game in which you throw fast small pointy things at a target), encourage (say something that helps you do something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
