Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.
Today we’re hearing about why Kenyan runners are so successful and we are
learning the words 'altitude' and 'resilient'.
Kenya is known for having excellent long distance runners, two of which are
Linet and Moses Masai.
Today we go to their school in Kenya to find out why the place they grew up in
has helped them win competitions.
Listen for the words 'altitude' and 'resilient'.
Clip
Linet and Moses went to school here - Bishop Okiring Secondary. It’s a sporty
school high up in the foothills of Mount Elgon. The high altitude means there’s
less oxygen in the air, which makes it harder to breathe and harder to run. But
because these kids are used to training in these conditions they become extra
resilient, giving them an added advantage when they race against others at
lower altitude.

Listen again for the words 'altitude' and 'resilient'.

We heard the word 'resilient'.
If something or someone is resilient it means they can suffer difficult conditions
and recover quickly.
… in these conditions they become extra resilient, giving them that added
advantage.
Well we have heard that due to the high altitude of where the school is, the
children become extra resilient meaning they can run faster at lower altitudes.
Now, let's hear from some people in London.
Listen to them using the word 'resilient'.
