How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- I always follow the Olympic Games and I have my favourite events. For example, I'm a fan of fencing. I've always liked cloak-and-dagger movies and I find fencers very graceful and elegant. I could watch them for hours. - Me, I prefer team sports, like volleyball or handball. The energy that comes off the field is electrifying. One day, I'll try and go [there] in person because there must be a crazy atmosphere. - I would love that too! Let's plan together for the next Olympic Games!

Clever stuff happening!
