Naked shoppers in France - level 2
Around 100 participants stripped to their undies and ran 100 metres to win free clothes in Paris.
After the race in cold weather, the shoppers were given one hour to browse the shop and choose two items. People seemed to enjoy themselves and they were happy to get some clothes for free.
The event was organised by a Spanish clothing brand. Events like this have taken place in other big cities as well. In France, winter sales are controlled by the government. There are official start dates and end dates.
Difficult words: participant (person who takes part in an activity or event), stripped (remove clothing), undies (underwear), browse (look).
