Freestyle football competition – level 2

25-11-2014 15:00

This year people held the Red Bull Street Style World Final in Brazil’s Salvador. The tournament of freestyle football lets competitors from around the world show off their skills. They perform all kinds of tricks with any part of their bodies and they kick the football. Each person has three minutes to show what he or she can do.

The winner of the tournament was Andrew Henderson who was from Britain. He beat competitors from 44 countries. He was so happy that he won and thanked everybody who supported him.

Difficult words: tournament (a series of contests), competitor (somebody who competes in a competition which is a situation when you try to be better than other people and win), support (help).

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