Robot Carries Olympic Torch – level 3

22-12-2017 15:00

South Korea started the 2018 winter torch relay with a robotics professor named Dr. Dennis Hong taking the trip with the torch in a car driven by Robot HUBO. The first torchbearer was Dennis and the robot was the second torchbearer. Up to 7,500 torchbearers will carry the Olympic flame around the country.

In February, the torch will come to Pyeongchang, South Korea, where a person will use it to light the cauldron at the Opening Ceremonies.

Difficult words: torch relay (when people pass a torch from one person to another), torchbearer (a person or a robot who carries a ceremonial torch), cauldron (a large pot for holding something such as a fire).
