Feb. 18: The Fish Are Swimming

Team Gemini had a weak showing at the PyeongChang games on Feb. 18 but held onto a share of the lead as Cancer and Pisces outperformed.

The twins managed just a single medal, but it was gold, and that was enough to keep Gemini in front on a weighted basis with 60 points. But Cancer’s four total medals lifted the crab into a tie for the lead on medal count.

Pisces was the big winner with two golds, three silver and two bronze, the most successful outing among the dozen astrological teams.

That lifted the fish from 10th place the day before to sixth, and fifth place on a medal-weighted basis.

Special recognition to Piscean Nick Goepper, of March 14th fame, who twisted and flew to a silver in slopestyle ski. The Fish took gold (Marcel Hirscher) and bronze (Alexis Pinturault) in men’s giant slalom.

Even the lowly Libra had a better day than Gemini, earning two gold on the winning men’s four-by-10km relay, along with a bronze in the same event. The Scales are still dead last, but it was their best day yet in the ZodiOlympics, with a lot of medals yet to be awarded based on form rather than speed or distance.

Cancer and Scorpio have had the best of these form events, such as figure skating and snowboard. Gemini is tops in the nookish distance category: ski jumping and curling.
