Amazing football juggler – level 1

17-04-2014 15:00

A man sets a new record. He is from Moscow. He gives a special performance.

He does three things at the same time. He stands on a big ball. He juggles with three footballs. He does “keepy uppies”. This means he moves a ball from foot to foot. The man does all of this for 14 seconds. He does 36 “keepy uppies”.

The man studied at a circus school. His mother enrolled him. He started to work when he was 15.

Difficult words: performance (doing something special), juggle (to keep three things in the air with your hands or with your feet), enroll (to join a school).

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

Can you juggle?
