Google doodle

New Delhi, Feb 10: Search engine Google on Saturday continuing with its doodle series on the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics featured a turtle, a good luck charm in Korea — on the second day of the Winter Games.

On Day 2, the tech giant featured the turtle, Magpie, in the dynamic Snow Game Doodle series.

In a classic take of “slow and steady wins the race”, Magpie is seen sporting a stone-y look, determined to compete with the best in the Games.

The doodle ends with Magpie as winner. “After a slow start in the games the Magpie is determined to make the best of it,” Google said in its doodle page.

“This amateur turned profe-shell-nel athlete has stepped into the rink sporting a stone-y look of concentration,” it added.

“I put my own spin on a classic technique. To take home a win, I just have to stick my neck out – then pull it back in and find a place on the mantle,” Magpie seems to be saying.

The “Magpie” doodle is the second in a series of 17 from the Snow Games series.

On Friday, the doodle began with a sledging penguin, a skiing dog and an ice-skating snake.

The PyeongChang Games, which started on Friday in South Korea is reported to be the largest Winter Games and would continue till February 25.

A total of 2,925 athletes from 92 nations are taking part in PyeongChang 2018, which will also award a record number of 102 gold medals.

It is the first Winter Olympic Games to be hosted by South Korea, which also hosted the Summer Olympics in 1988.
