Women wear shoes with high heels. These shoes are nice to look at, but they are not good for running.

A woman from Germany doesn't care. She runs with high heels. She is very good at it. She can run fast. She runs 100 metres in 14.531 seconds. It is a new record.

There is an interesting race in Berlin. Women run with high heels. The heels must be 7 centimetres high. The woman runs in this race. She is the best.

Difficult words: heel (part of a shoe that is high), care (be important to somebody), race (situation when people try to be the best).

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