Sport Stacking is a type of sport. It is only 36 years old. People stack 12 plastic cups in the sport. The cups must be stacked into a pyramid. Also, you must be fast. The faster you are, the better.

Athletes from Taiwan win 11 gold medals at the World Championship. A 15-year-old girl wins four of them. Her best time is 5.615 seconds. She says that this is the high point in her career. She is under a lot of stress. She tries to keep calm. She wants to get even better.

Taiwan hosts the next World Championship in Cowshung City.

Difficult words: stack (to put things on one another), high point (the best time), host (to organise).
