Daily Prophet Sports Correspondent, Ginny Potter, reports as the 2014 Wizolympics in Sochi come to a dramatic conclusion at the Firebird Stadium, with Russia handing off the Wizolympic Salamander to Pyeongchang, South Korea.
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.
It’s getting cold at the 2014 Sochi Wizolympics! The W.W.N.’s Lee Jordan reports on the magic-intensive Ice Course at the Firebird Stadium, as well as the exciting final round at the Avalanching event, while Glenda Chittock greets the teams of Expedition Wandless as they race to reunite with their wands.
With the Wizolympics winding down, we head into one of our final events: the Ice Course. Easily one of the most watched sports due to the multitude of magic displayed, crowds have gathered in the thousands to watch. The arena you see before you has been transformed into a frozen tundra maze. Our six individuals will traverse across the ice at the same time, hoping to make it to the end before the other competitors. As they attempt to exit the maze, the semifinalists will face creatures of varying degrees of danger and be expected to use their magical skill to pass them. Some of these creatures will be frozen in blocks of ice, and the competitors will be forced to battle them to move forward. Others may come straight from the frigid waters below the ice. Starting from different points, the first four individuals to make it to the center of the maze will advance to the finals later this evening.
