I think its really cool that Google would spend time to do a simple change like this to reflect the festive season.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

So if each animal represents a country, and each picture represents them winning that particular event, the scoreboard would be as follows:

  • First Place (3 appearances):     Rat & Rabbit
  • Second Place (2 appearances):     Tiger, Snake, Horse & Monkey
  • Third Place (1 appearance):     Ox, Dragon, Sheep, Dog & Pig

We have a two way tie for first place. XD Hehe!

Don’t forget to catch the closing ceremony tonight!

Special shoutout to Selvie for helping me to save these images!!

Google Special: Last Day Of Beijing Olympics

The Olympics has reached its final day and China is at the very top with 49 gold currently, hoping to smash into the 50th. USA can only go home with second but with an impressive 34 gold. Russia climbs up to sit at third with 21 gold. Great Britain slips to fourth with 19 while Germany does not budge with 16 at fifth.

Another amazing year for the Olympics! Michael Phelps proves to be the king of the Water Cube with eight gold while Usain Bolt rules the runway track with three new world records.

Remember to catch the Closing Ceremony tonight! See you again in 2012 in London!

China is showing no signs of defeat with 27 gold medals. USA is struggling to chase up with 15 gold. Germany nests at third with eight gold. Korea storms up with eight gold nine silver, while Italy is trying to weasel in with eight gold five silver.

Google Special: Beijing Olympics Day 8

A horse is playing football (or soccer, if you’re using that) with a snake. Wrong direction, Mr. Horse! Mr. Snake looks like he could save the goal. The horse’s arched body doesn’t really look like a “G” though.

Google Special: Beijing Olympics Day 7

Tiger playing badminton? Looks like a nudge towards Malaysia since Malaysia’s national animal is the Malaya tiger. Best of luck to Lee Chong Wei for the men’s single title!
