Parachuting championship in Dubai

12-12-2014 07:00

People organise a championship. It happens in Dubai. It is a parachuting championship. People jump off a plane. They do tricks in the air.

Over 1,000 people do this. They are from different countries. Russia, France and China do very good in the championship. However, not everything goes well. Strong winds complicate the championship.

This event happens every year. This year is the 5th championship. This year’s championship is the last one.

Difficult words: championship (a sports event), parachute (to jump off a plane and fall down slowly with a parachute – a big piece of cloth), complicate (to make a situation more difficult).

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