Snowboarding Gold Up for Grabs

Reindeer Games Nearing End

[Snowboarding Gold Up for Grabs]
Welcome back to the Reindeer Games! Today, we have the final day of the final event of the games, the Snowboarding competition.

So far we’ve had seven gold medal winners – Dancer in the High Jump, Donder in the Long Jump, Comet in the Sprint Race, Vixen for the Around-the-World Marathon, Prancer in the Figure Skating competition, Blitzen in the Speed Skating event and Dasher on the Obstacle Course.

And today, we will award the eighth medal, which will be the first-ever gold medal in the Reindeer Games for Snowboarding.

In two days of Snowboarding, the fans here at the North Pole have seen the Slopestyle event and the Big Air competition. Today, we have the most difficult of all the Snowboarding events, the Half-Pipe.

The Half-Pipe is very hard, and it’s very dangerous for most folks, even for the very best snowboarders. But our reindeer can fly, so if they make an error in the half-pipe, they can always use their flying powers to make sure they don’t get hurt.

The half-pipe gets its name from the shape of the course, which is like a half of a tube that has an icy surface.

The goal in half-pipe is to perform complicated tricks, all while maintaining perfect form. To do this, the snowboarder uses the half-pipe to gather speed and perform those tricks. Most of those tricks take place above the walls and feature jumps, twists and rotations and all kinds of interesting things.

[by Timbo Elf] Ok, we are ready. First up is Dancer. What will Dancer do? She begins her routine, and she’s inside the half-pipe. She’s going up and down side of the pipe, and she’s picking up speed. She’s going very fast now, and here’s the first big move.

Oh my, it’s a new double McTwist 1260, the hardest half-pipe trick ever performed. That’s a super job by Dancer.

And now it’s Vixen’s turn. What will Vixen do? She’s onto the course, and her routine is underway. She’s high in the air, and Vixen completes a double-cork 1080, another spectacular move.

And all the reindeer go through their half-pipe routines, too, and all do very well, as the many North Polians watch in delight.

The Official Elves are totaling up the scores now for the three days of Snowboarding, and soon we will have our final gold medal winner.

The reindeer meanwhile are resting after a very difficult Reindeer Games. They tried their best in each event, and they should be ready for the Big Night when they lead Santa’s sleigh all over the world. What a great success this year's Reindeer Games have been!

And now for the final winner. After some adding and subtracting and some double-checking, we have our winner – Cupid is the gold medal winner in the Snowboarding competition and Dancer takes second place.

Well, that’s it for the Reindeer Games, and it’s been fun. Thanks to all who have followed along. Check back tomorrow one more time for the Closing Ceremonies, and all have a Merry Christmas and a good New Year!
