The X-Project – level 2

15-03-2021 07:00

The X-Project is a special event for people who love extreme sports. For many years, some of the world’s best athletes wanted to get together in one event which would combine different sports.

The X-Project took place in the beautiful Swiss mountains and there were athletes who did windsurfing, speed riding, snowboarding, and snowkiting. They got to the top of a mountain in a helicopter and their task was to get down. Some athletes said that they were scared because they never did anything like this before. They were very excited, too.

Filmmakers made a film about the event. The film was full of amazing images of the beautiful mountains, and it showed the sports from a completely new view.

Difficult words: combine (to put more different things together), speed riding (a sport in which a person uses a paraglider and skis), snowkiting (a sport in which a person uses skis or a snowboard and a kite).

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