Office chair racing in Taiwan

Office chair racing in Taiwan

02-05-2016 15:00

Office chair racing is from Japan. This year, people organise it overseas for the first time. They organise it in Taiwan.

People are happy about the event. It is a lot of fun. Hundreds of people race. One man dresses in a Dragon Ball costume. He wants to show respect to Japan. He also wants to give out positive energy.

This sport is fun, but it is not easy. It can make you tired. One person says that it is good to listen to music before the race. The music warms you up.

Difficult words: race (a sports event when people try to be the fastest), overseas (in a foreign country, especially a country across the sea), costume (special clothes).

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