Skiing Robots – level 3

19-02-2018 15:00

Eight teams entered robots into a skiing competition in Hoengseong, South Korea.

The robots had two legs and arms but were not as tall as humans. Their ride down a gentle slope was reminiscent of a child learning to ski, and some of them fell or skied into the barrier net.

Taekwon V won the prize of 10,000 dollars, and it was named after a famous Korean cartoon.

Difficult words: to be reminiscent of (remind you of something because it can look similar).
