Man Helps a Runner – level 1

30-07-2021 15:00

This news is from the London Marathon. A runner falls down. He is extremely tired. A man picks him up, but he falls down again. The finish line is only 200 metres away. The man helps him get to the finish.

It is nice that the man helped him. People share this story on the Internet. The two runners become friends. They want to meet at races. They want to run the marathon next year, too.

Difficult words: race (a sports event when you try to be the fastest).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
