Parachuting championship in Dubai - level 2
Contestants from around the world came to Dubai to take part in the 5th Dubai International Parachuting Championship.
Over 1,000 people jumped out of a plane and performed midair acrobatics. Russia, France, and China were all successful in the championship.
However, strong winds delayed the competition, and this year’s championship was the last one.
Difficult words: contestant (person who takes part in a contest – a sports event), midair (in the air), delay (to make something happen later).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
