Doodle Snow Games – Day 5 – Welcome to Day 5 of the Doodle Snow Games! On this brrr-eezy day in PyeongChang, we’re joined by athletes from all over the world hoping to prove themselves best in class (or species).
Let’s follow Magpie for a fluttering glimpse of today’s action…
Outfitted with a built-in visor and finger spikes, surprise “slider” Raccoon Dog slips into the luge competition. A sleek chute with hairpins and a 300-foot drop, the natural track is no match for this furry paw-ticipant, but Raccoon Dog will still have to out-fox the competition.A Korean native with an unusual tail-first form, Raccoon Dog surpasses a speed of 95 mph/153 km per hour and up to 5 Gs of acceleration. Luge continues to be the fastest sport on ice, and one of the most exciting at the Doodle Snow Games.
Raccoon Dog runs rings around the competition and wins by a whisker with a great tail to tell!
Stop by every day for the next few weeks to keep up with all the action from the Doodle Snow Games!
