Celebrating the 11th day of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, today's Google Doodle is more of a celebration of the games in general. Google does usually pick a sport of choice every day as part of its Doodle Snow Games series but decided to settle for a generic animated strip today.
The company has not described the doodle on its blog page, but going by what we can see in the doodle, it does borrow elements from a number of events taking place on Day 10 at Pyeongchang. These include speed skating, bobsleigh, ski jumping as well as snowboarding.
In the Doodle we see an insect carry a giant snowball uphill and then starts running as it lets go of the snowball. The insect skates through the icy patch with the snowball catching up. Just as the insect approaches the finish-line, the ball finally catches up with the insect and rolls over it across the finish line.
Google is expected to showcase 17 doodles in total as part of Google Snow Games. Today's doodle is spread across major parts of North America, a few countries in South America, all of Europe and Australia and also parts of East and South-East Asia.
