Although the poker tournament continues, last week’s focus was all about the Games—the South Pole Winter Games, where they had actual medals, a closing ceremony, and even an Olympic flame. There was a wide array of events, from a 10k treadmill to an individual sled pull, giving participants many opportunities to medal. IceCube winterover James not only medaled but won the gold in the Rubik’s Cube competition. Even amid all that excitement, winterover Martin made it outside to capture some great shots lit by a full moon.
