At first, it might seem quite obvious; at least it was for me. In the end, I still came to the same conclusion, but there were some aspects I hadn’t considered.
As the Squib Games came to a close in Sochi, things heated up amid the slushy snow. Just after Avalanching concluded on Thursday, the Squib players were charged with the task of shoveling their way back down the mountain. Before they could get far, ten Cornish pixies mysteriously arrived on the scene. Three snatched Diggory Pitts’s (USA) shovel from his blistered hands and began to shovel snow on top of his head while the other pixies dumped snowballs down his underpants.

WWN’s Lee Jordan reports on the daring teams competing in the Skrewt Sledding event, as well as the special Squib guest at the ongoing Snow Shoveling competition, while Glenda Chittock details the deep dive taken by the athletes of Expedition Wandless.
We are in the homestretch of the Snow Shoveling games as the 11th day comes to a close in Sochi – and what an event it has been.
We are now on Day 6 of the 15- day-long Squib Snow Shoveling games. With a heatwave hitting Sochi, much of the shoveling has been of slush or after-game clean-ups. Squibs received special permission to shovel dragon dung after the Dragon Wrangling competition completed on Saturday. While the large piles could have been wiped away with a flick of a wand, it was felt that the Squibs would enjoy the task. The Wizolympic Committee is donating all dung collected to the Herbology Department of Russia’s Mudrymag Academy.
