Here it is! The final voting event of the Animalympics!
The Cheetah made a big enough deal about the unfairness of a two to one fight to the Committee and as a result was allowed to choose a partner for the final round. And change his costume color. Just for fun. His back up muscle may look familiar.

Week 5 Results!

Apparently the theme for the Final Four was the smaller the better, as both behemoths were felled handily. You'll notice the medal podiums no longer in use, replaced by more combative results. This is due in part to my friend Lawrence, who noticed back in week one that it didn't make sense to have weightlifters competing against sprinters. So I decided to make the final rounds have a more hand-to-hand (or hand-to-pole-vaulting-pole as the case may be) combat theme. Just for fun.

Here's a related video to give you an idea of what I mean.

Thanks to everyone who voted! The final results going into the championship round are the Cheetah versus the Flamingo and Fox. Though the Animalympic Committee is currently looking into more rule loopholes to try to even the fight...

Animalympics FINAL FOUR

Bracket 1:

Bracket 2:

This just in: Having shared the gold medal in week 4 and bonded over their irrational, all-encompassing love of pole-vaulting, newly consolidated "Team Pole Vault" have found an IAC loophole to leave their respective teams behind and compete together in the Final Four!

Tie! For the first time ever, two competitors received the same amount of votes. (Unfortunately the gibbon could not be located for the awards ceremony, though there's a good chance he was drowning his sorrows with the rest of the pathetic blue team at a local watering hole.)

I wonder what happens in real life if two pole vaulters clear the same height? In animalympics world they both get gold, but who moves on to the championship round? We (the International Animalympic Committee [or IAC]) are dusting off the old rulebook to find out how this affects the final four. Come back Monday to find out.

Another first this week: Monday saw 100 visitors to the site in one day - a new record! Thanks to everyone who visited and voted - we're down to the last two weeks!
