19-02-2018 07:00

Unicycling is a new sport. It is only 15 years old. People organise a championship for it. The championship happens in Cologne, Germany. This year is its tenth year.

Around 150 people compete in the championship. They do tricks at a skatepark.

Difficult words: unicycling (riding on a unicycle and doing tricks; a unicycle is a ‘bicycle’ with only one wheel), championship (a sports event which finds the best person in a sport), compete (try to win, be the best).
