Winter Olympics recreated at home - in Australian summer

A family from Australia pulled out all the stops recently to recreate the Winter Olympics at home during the Australian summer.

With the help from their creative dad, Samuel (9) and Mikalah (11) attempted their own improvised versions of an incredible array of winter events, including snowboarding, figure skating and the skeleton.

"We love the Winter Olympics so much we thought we'd recreate some of the events at home," said dad Jacob Strickling.

"The only problem is that we are in Australia, it's summer, and it never snows where we live. So we had to make do," he added.
