World Ice Fishing Championship – level 2

06-03-2017 15:00

In Latvia, the 14th World Ice Fishing Championship happened. The competitors were in teams or on their own as they tried to catch the most fish.

One competitor from Russia said that ice fishing is interesting, as ordinary fishing in ordinary situations is boring. Ice fishing is like doing ‘chess on ice’.

This year, Ukraine won the competition. It had 1 kilogramme more of fish than Latvia, which was in second place.

Difficult words: championship (a competition to choose the champion – the best person/team), competitor (a person who wants to be the best), ordinary (normal).

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