Skiing with no ice - level 2

Skiing with no ice - level 2

18-07-2013 14:00

A Venezuelan skier cannot be stopped by the hot weather. The adventurous man wants to make his dreams come true.

He travelled over 2,500 kilometres in Venezuela on his roller skis. It took him a few months, but it was worth it. He beat his previous record of travelling 2,306 kilometres.

The new record has to be still ratified by the Guinness World Records but there's something perhaps even cooler. He will try to get to the 2014 Winter Olympics. Hopefully, he'll be OK with the snow.

Interesting words: adventurous (trying new things), ratify (make something official).

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