Racing on all fours - level 1
A race is held in Japan. This race is special. The runners run on all fours – they run on their legs and their arms.
An 18-year-old man wins. He beats a 30-year-old man. The older man was the best. He is now the second.
The winner’s time is 15.86 seconds. His hero is Usain Bolt. His favourite animal is the monkey. The older man is the inventor of the sport.
Difficult words: race (a situation when people run fast to win), beat (be better than somebody), was (past of “be”), inventor (a person who invents something – makes something new).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
