Racing on all fours - level 2
A special race was held in a Japanese city. The runners got down on all fours – they used their legs as well as their arms to race 100 metres on the track.
An 18-year-old man beat the 30-year-old who held the record. Also, the 30-year-old actually invented the race on all fours.
The winner’s time was 15.86 seconds. His hero is Usain Bolt and his favourite animal is the monkey, of course.
Difficult words: race (a situation when people try to run as fast as they can to win), track (a way for runners).
