Slalom in Shanghai - level 2
More than 100 participants from 22 countries competed in the Roller Skating Slalom in Shanghai. There were several categories. One of them was synchronised freestyle slalom.
It is a category where two people dance on roller skates together. A famous team of two men from South Korea wanted to win, but they were in 4th place. It was probably because of the rain and slippery ground.
Difficult words: compete (try to be the best), synchronised (happening at exactly the same time), slippery (wet and harder to go on).
