Walking on cable - level 2

Walking on cable - level 2

28-06-2013 14:00

Another record set. A brave man walked on a 426-metre-long cable over the Grand Canyon.

The daredevil had no safety rope. There was no safety net either. No wonder he was praying all of the time.

After stepping on the ground again, the hero was warmly welcome. He said that the biggest problem was the wind. He had to be very focused. The whole walk took him 22 minutes.

Interesting words: daredevil (person who likes doing dangerous things), no wonder (it is not surprising), focused (concentrated).

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