Time to dig your way out of the snow drift at the front door nations, this is what your athletes have been 'training' for!
So offer them a free air ticket to and coupon for the 'Lost Comet Pub' and get them signed up to win for Canada :cananim: at the Winter Olympic Cross Regional Games to be held in Wysteria.

To sign up, create a list and post it in the thread below, stating your:

1/Nation Name
2/the name of athlete(s) or name of team you are sending to each category.
Your nation will need to submit an athlete/team for each of the events listed above

As this is a Unisex Event, you may submit either female or male name(s) of athletes to the different categories.
If your athlete's sex isn't easy to decipher by name, please put (m) or (f) after the name

Team categories require names of team only, not all the men or women in the team.


** Sign Ups will end on the 24th of Feb **






Here is a handy list of definitions for each event:
Event definitions, courtesy of Wikipedia:

Speed skating is a competitive form of ice skating in which the competitors race each other in travelling a certain distance on skates.

Skeleton is a winter sport featured in the Winter Olympic Games where the competitor rides head-first and prone (lying face down) on a flat sled. It is normally run on an ice track that allows the sled to gain speed by gravity.

Biathlon is a winter sport that combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting. A variant is summer biathlon, which combines either cross-country running or roller-skiing with rifle shooting.

Giant slalom (GS) is an alpine skiing and alpine snowboarding discipline. It involves skiing between sets of poles (gates) spaced at a greater distance to each other than in slalom but less than in Super-G. Giant slalom and slalom make up the technical events in alpine ski racing.
Note: we call this 'Giant Slalom' for the Winter Olympics being held in Wysteria

Ski jumping is a form of nordic skiing in which athletes descend a take-off ramp, called an inrun, jump, and fly as far as possible. Points are awarded for distance and style. Ski jumping is predominantly a winter sport, and has been part of the Winter Olympic Games since their inception in 1924.[1] It can also be performed in summer on artificial surfaces.

Snowkayaking or snowboating is a winter sport practised by experienced kayakers. In contrast to the summer sport, the medium of descent does not consist of rivers, but of snow, typically in the backcountry but occasionally at resorts and ski areas.[1] Races are held in a modus known from the snowboard sport and is called boatercross where four kayakers race against each other. The first two of each race will step forward in the next round.

Skijoring is a winter sport where a person on skis is pulled by a horse, a dog (or dogs) or a motor vehicle. It is derived from the Norwegian word skikjøring meaning ski driving.

Figure Skating is a sport and activity in which individuals, duos, or groups perform on figure skates on ice. It was the first winter sport included in the Olympics, in 1908. The four Olympic disciplines are men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing.

Curling is a sport in which players slide stones on a sheet of ice towards a target area which is segmented into four concentric circles. It is related to bowls, boules and shuffleboard. Two teams, each with four players, take turns sliding heavy, polished granite stones, also called rocks, across the ice curling sheet towards the house, a circular target marked on the ice.

Ice Hockey is a team sport played on ice in which two teams of skaters use sticks to shoot a hard rubber puck into their opponent's net to score points.

Alpinism: Mountaineering is often called Alpinism, especially in European languages, which implies climbing with difficulty such high mountains as the Alps. A mountaineer with such great skill is called an Alpinist.


Please note 'Winter Swimming' from the above definitions has been replaced by 'Snow Kayaking'

Look out for the threads opening at noon in Wysteria on Saturday.

I believe both the Observer's Seat and the Alpinism Thread will be open.

The Alpnism thread is opening a little earlier so you can get over there and introduce your gallant team of adventurers and let us all see how they prepare for when the race begins come March 2nd.
Alpinism is a strong role play thread, the winners and losers are all important, it will be the story that matters here :)
