The World Black Pudding Throwing Championship took place last Sunday in England. The contest is more than 100 years old and it is still quite popular.

Black pudding is a made of pig’s blood, fat and some intestines. One man at the event said that it is disgusting, and that the best thing to do with it, is to throw it away. And that’s exactly what they did!

The competitors had to stand on a golden grid block and try to hit the target. The winner was a 63 year-old man.

Difficult words: intestines (long tube in your body through which food passes after it leaves the stomach), disgusting (awful), grid (metal frame with bars across it).

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