Welcome back to the Reindeer Games! Yesterday, the Figure Skating competition began, even though our Official Elves have gone on strike. Without the elves to judge the skating, many thought the event would be cancelled.
But with the reindeer in need of the exercise to be ready for Christmas Eve, Rudolph stepped in to judge, and so the games go on.
Meanwhile, Santa continues to fly about space with Waldo, while Gizmo puts together the rescue rocket. It’s very busy at the North Pole these days, and the Reindeer Games are no exception.
Today the Great Eight reindeer moved to the second round of the Figure Skating competition, the “short program.”
Each reindeer must make four moves in one minute’s time, as Rudolph judges the skill and keeps the tally.
The Hoojamawazit Skating and Ice Cream Palace is packed, despite the elfian strike.
First up is Vixen. What will Vixen do? The crowd awaits, hoping for some exciting moves. And, for sure, Vixen completes a double backflip, a whirly bird, a lightning fast spin and then a perfectly executed Button-maker maneuver. Wow, that was fantastic!
Next up is Prancer. Showing grace and magnificent skills, Prancer does a Gene Kelly, a whirling dervish, a beagle eagle and then a nice sinking spiral. Incredible! The reindeer’s skating skills remain spectacular.
Cupid, Donder, Blitzen, Dasher, Dancer and Comet take to the ice, as well, and also dazzle the crowd, as Rudolph struggles to write down the scores. After a few wayward pencil strokes, Rudolph’s tally is ready.
And remarkably, after two full days of skating, all eight reindeer are tied for first place! That’s amazing. And that means the final round tomorrow will decide the fifth gold medal winner of the games. Check back to see who it will be.
And now for the final day of the Reindeer Games. Today our eighth and final event, the 2,222-Mile Marathon will conclude at the North Pole. The winner will be our final gold medalist of the games.
Welcome back sports fans! We’re in the midst of our final event, the 2,222-Mile Marathon.

Today we move to the final round of our seventh event; the Obstacle Course.
The Games continued today with our seventh event, the Obstacle Course, an event perhaps more challenging for the elves to build than for our Great Eight Reindeer to complete.
Welcome back to the Hoojamawazit Skating and Ice Cream Palace for the final round of the Speed Skating competition, our sixth event of the Games.

After the four-day, Around-the-World Marathon, Santa’s reindeer were a bit tired but nonetheless headed out to the Hoojamawazit Skating and Ice Cream Palace for the first day of the Figure Skating event.
Welcome back to the Games! As the thrilling, yet tiring 10,000-mile Around-the-World Marathon continued, our Reindeer blazed across the sky for the fourth straight day and finally headed for the finish line at the North Pole.
This year's Reindeer Games continued with the third leg of the 10,000-mile Around-the-World Marathon. After wrapping up yesterday’s second led at the White House, the race headed over the Chesapeake Bay and across the Atlantic Ocean to Africa.

The Reindeer Games continued on Day 4 with an exciting conclusion to the long jump competition.
The Reindeer Games continued on Day 3 with the start of the Long Jump competition, the second of eight exciting events.
It’s the second day of this year's Reindeer Games and the final day of the High Jump competition. Dasher, Donder and Dancer were eliminated yesterday but the rest of the Great Eight are looking for the gold.
Santa’s Reindeer have abilities like no other – they can run fast and jump high and move with the utmost grace and precision.
With a large crowd of elves and reindeer and other North Polians in attendance, Santa officially opened the Reindeer Games today at a packed Workshop Arena. Every seat was filled for the rousing ceremony, as Santa welcomed the famed competitors.
The Games will begin on the Monday following the American holiday of Thanksgiving.
