Robot Carries Olympic Torch – level 2
South Korea began its 2018 winter torch relay with a robotics professor taking the trip with the torch driven in a car by a robot. The first torchbearer was the professor and the robot was the second. Around 7,500 torchbearers will carry the Olympic torch around the country.
In February, the torch will come to the site of the Olympics in South Korea, where a person will use it to light the cauldron during the first events at the Olympics.
Difficult words: torch relay (when people pass a torch to one another), torchbearer (a person or a thing that carries a torch to celebrate something), cauldron (a large pot for holding something such as a fire).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
