According to the Google Doodle blog, the Doodle Snow Games follows a storyline where the grebes are shown to be up from a slumber and ready to take over the ice ring. It clearly denotes a couple ice skating, which is one of the events of figure ice skating.

The doodle tells a story that the grebes have been together ever since they have been chicks and now they are couple figure skating together, gracefully. As they skate together on the blueish and icy skating ring, the two grebes form a heart to mark their union.

Figure ice skating is one of the oldest sports in the history of the Olympics. It had debuted in Summer Olympics 1908 in London and the sport has three events. Men, women, and mixed events.

Coming back to the doodle, these grebes can be seen in the background of Pagoda-like structures. They look very much in love.
