In continuation of the Doodle Snow Games, Google has posted a new doodle today which marks the fourth day of the ongoing Winter Olympics 2018 in South Korea’s PyeongChang.

After showcasing ice skating of the turtles and a polar bear skiing in the past two doodles, today’s doodle shows off the snowboarders’ clan of the animal kingdom. With the elephant leading the pack, followed by bear, cat, and armadillo, the animated doodle also shows off a squirrel, and a penguin as part of the snowboarding competition.

Google will be posting a new doodle each day throughout the duration of the Winter Olympics 2018 which started on February 9 and will run until February 25; which means you will be in for a treat each day for the remaining 13 days.

Today’s doodle is the fourth in the series, and is visible on Google homepages in most parts of the world. As there will be a new doodle each day, there’s a team of seven designers behind the creatives which is headed by Jessica Yu.

Winter Olympics 2018 are being hosted for the first time in South Korea. The sporting event witnesses over 2,000 athletes representing 92 countries at 102 events across 15 sports skiing, skating, luge, ski jumping, ice hockey, snowboarding among other games.
