Skiing with no ice - level 1

A man from Venezuela likes to ski and he doesn't need snow. The hot weather doesn't stop him. He has roller skis.

He travels on them in Venezuela. He likes to travel more and more. 2,500 kilometres is not a problem for him. It is his new record.

It may be a Guinness World Record soon. But he has even bigger plans. He wants to try for the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Interesting words: roller skis (skis with wheels like a skateboard), travel (move from place to place).

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