Thank you everyone for entering the 2016 Stuffie Olympics! It was an exciting Olympics last month, full of jam-packed events. Let’s see some of our stuffie athletes below – scroll to the very bottom of this post for the winners of this contest!
Here we have Jerry and Ben who are representing the USA!
They are really focused here on LEAF DIVING! This seems to be a new event. I’m sure this event will be even more popular in the fall.
They are also really killing it in the INTENSIVE READING event! My question is, what are they reading? Cookbooks? Gardening books? These books are the perfect size for them.
VROOM VROOM VROOM!!! Look at Jerry and Ben go in this COMPETITIVE DRIVING event! It looks like they are driving a Dodge Charger! I love this car.
Next they are competing in the GOING-OVER-NIAGARA-FALLS-IN-A-BARREL-BUT-THEN-CHICKENING-OUT event. We’ll give them points for the effort though!
And lastly, here is Ben in the INTENSIVE BEAR STARING event! Whoa, that’s pretty intense!
Representing Australia in this year’s Olympics are siblings Benaud, Hicks, and Chloe!
In the BAKING event, we have Benaud whipping up a batch of delicious… muffins? They look beary delicious, but the judges will need to sample a few for scoring purposes… NOM NOM NOM…
This next event looks like a game of… CRICKET? Am I right? We are not so familiar with the sport over here.
This is Chloe in the KNITTING event! I didn’t know this was an event, so cool!
And here’s Chloe again in the DRESSAGE event with her horse Soda-Belle! Very nice!
Next we are pleased to welcome newcomer BENNY WOODLOUSE! I have never met a woodlouse before, have you?
Here is Benny doing awesomely in the QUADRUPLE SCULL event! Way to go!
And here he is again in 100 METER SCURRYING! I will say, a very creative use of seat cushions!
And Benny’s last entry, is in POLE JUMPING! A pole jumping woodlouse – yes, anything can happen in the Stuffie Olympics! This looks a little painful? We can tell he is really giving it his all here!
Representing Canada, here is Sandy!
Well, I was beary impressed to see Sandy get back on the kayak for the KAYAKING event! He had an unpleasant swim after falling out of his own Tupperware kayak earlier this year. Really showing the Olympic spirit here.
I am a huge fan of this next event, and I wonder why it is not an event in the human Olympics? Here is Sandy going for the gold in the SALMON COOKING event! I count 10 or so fillets here! Ahem, the judges would like some for sampling…
Here is Sandy in another risky event – CAVING! Any salmon in there, Sandy?
And finally, here’s Sandy in the SQUASH-TACLE event! I have never heard of this event before! Look at that effort getting down there fighting the weeds and all! Go Sandy!
Next is another newcomer, Terrance, who is representing Greece… or Germany… I am not really sure from his Facebook profile.
Terrance is competing in only one event, DIVING, but it was such a riveting moment! Check it out below.
Climbing the ladder to the top – scary!
Wow, he is brave!
WOW WOW WOW!!! He gave it 200% effort!
A quick spin-dry for the grand finale!
The next entry is from Droopy and friends. Look at Spunky excel in the RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS RIBBON event! Is that a ribbon or fruit by the foot?
It seems that Carrots has joined the canine group for a bit of SOCCER! I think Carrots would do very well in the long jump and high jump.
Here is Patch, Droopy, and Spunky participating in the JAVELIN THROW with their respectively sized javelins!
And finally here is Little Fox in a new event called COMPETITIVE SIGHTSEEING. Little Fox has traveled to many places! He would make a great stuffie tour guide as well, I think.
AND THE WINNERS ARE*…
GOLD – TERRANCE, for Diving
SILVER – BENNY, for Pole Jump
BRONZE – DROOPY & Friends, for Javelin Throw
Thanks to everyone who entered! Prizes will be sent shortly.
