Christmas Olympics – Day 5 – Reindeer Relay

Today is Day Five of the Reindeer Games Olympics.  The big event today was the final of the Great Reindeer Relay Race.

Two teams were racing for the gold medal. Rudolph, Vixen, Prancer, and Dasher made one team. Donner, Blitzen, Comet, and Cupid made the other team.

Both teams really wanted to win!

The baton was a long carrot.  The reindeer had to carry the carrot in their mouths.  The fastest team around the track would be the winners.  Passing the carrot was very tricky.  The reindeer had to try very hard not to drop it.

Rudolph and Donner were first to go.

BANG!  The starter’s gun went off.

It was neck and neck and nose and nose!  Rudolph passed the carrot to Vixen. Donner passed the carrot to Blitzen.

It was still neck and neck!  Vixen passed the carrot to Prancer.  Blitzen passed the carrot to Comet.  The carrot fell.  The crowd gasped.

Comet caught the carrot just in time – PHEW!  But now Prancer was in the lead.

Comet ran as fast as he could go.  Prancer passed the carrot to Dasher.  Comet passed the carrot to Cupid.  Dasher was dashing ahead.  Could Cupid catch him?

Dasher won the race by a reindeer’s whisker!

But wait a minute! Where was the carrot?  Oh no! Dasher had eaten it!

Scunner the Grumpy Elf was the judge.  He did not looked amused.  “No carrot means no medal,” he said.

Dasher was very embarrassed.  Then he hiccupped.  Everybody laughed, even Scunner!  Three cheers for Donner, Blitzen, Comet, and Cupid.  The winners after all!

Merry Christmas!

P.S.    Carrots are like candy to a reindeer.  Could you carry a candy baton and not eat it?  Or would you be like Dasher?  You can click here to tell me about it or, scroll down to see what other people have written!

  10. I bet Rudolph could win the race next time to beat the other team , but the other team beated Rudolph ‘s team and won the race.

  11. I would not eat the candy baton, because I don’t eat candy. I’m a athlete and not suppose to have sweets. But I wish I could just have one piece of cake or a ice cream more often too bad.

  12. Cool! I didn’t know that reindeers could be in a relay race! I wouldn’t eat the candy. I would wait until they said I could.

  13. If it was chalote i would not eat it and win the race but if it was some other candy i would eat it in 1 sec.

  14. I hope that grumpy elf will be happy on Christmas day!! But I think that the reinder are very happy my faviourte reinder has got to be Dasher. Im not saying I dont like eny of the other reinders I bet there realy cute too.XxxxxxX

    Ps: If only I could see the reinders and see u Santa xxxxxxxxx.

  15. If it was chocolate I would have it gobbled down in two seconds !!! If It was any other sweet I would be able to win the race !!!
