Amazing football juggler – level 2

17-04-2014 15:00

A man set a new record. He is from Moscow and he gave a difficult performance. He is a man who can multitask.

He stood on a giant ball while he juggled three footballs and did “keepy uppies”. “Keepy uppies” is when you flick a ball from foot to foot. The man did 36 of them in 14 seconds.

The man’s mother enrolled him into circus school when he was a child. He has been performing professionally since the age of 15.

Difficult words: multitask (to do more things at once), flick (kick), enrol (arrange to join school).

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

Can you juggle?
