You can track the latest Olympic-themed doodles on Google’s website.

As of Monday, Norway leads the medal count with eight total. The U.S. is fifth with four medals, including two golds.

The 2018 Winter Olympics at Pyeongchang, South Korea are in full swing and to mark the occasion Google is celebrating it with a series of “Doodle Snow Games”.

In the latest Doodle, to mark Day four of the event, we see a motley crew, including an elephant, a tortoise and a penguin, racing snowboards down the slopes.

The elephant is well ahead of the pack as they race down the slopes, with the tortoise languishing behind others.

Users can activate the animal-based animations by clicking on the play button at the centre of the designs.

The Snow Games doodle is the fourth in a series of 17 from the search engine giant. There will be one marking every day of the Winter Olympics that’ll go on from February 9 to 25.

The Olympics opened in a spirit of intense rapprochement on Friday as the two Koreas marched together.

As Google said, “new friendships are bound to crystallize before the end of the games,” no matter who wins.
