Animated Google doodle of day 16 of Winter Olympic Games features octopus as free skate athlete
On the 16th day of the Winter Olympic Games, the internet search engine and tech giant Google features an octopus participating in free skate event in the rink. On clicking the start button at the centre of the logo on Google's home page, you can watch the swift and short animated doodle.

Tomorrow, the last animated doodle of Google's Doodle Snow Games series will be put up at the search engine's homepage with another athletic cartoon animal related a sport at the ongoing Winter Olympic Games taking place at PyeongChang in South Korea. "Stop by tomorrow to catch the final action as we wrap up the Doodle Snow Games!" writes Google blog.

The search engine giant writes on the Google Doodle blog, "Welcome to Day 16 of the Doodle Snow Games! On this brrr-eezy day in PyeongChang, we're joined by athletes from all over the world hoping to prove themselves best in class (or species).Let's follow Magpie into the rink for a fluttering glimpse of today's action"

Describing the doodle, the blog adds, "Octopus dominates the free skate program today, playing to an enthusiastic corral of sea-fans. Facing stiff competition, Octo attempts the world's first double-quad and lands swimmingly, changing the tide of figure skating forever. While the adoring a fish-ionados in the crowd do the Wave, the judges get Kraken on adding up points for the technical feet. Giant Squid awards Octopus a perfect eight out of eight, but Gator siphons off a point."

According the blog: Asked about the perfect mark, Giant Squid says, "Gill-ty as charged, I'm a sucker for jet propulsion!" Even with the range of scores, Octopus picks up another shiny win!
