Speed skating is an Olympic sport. Speed skaters wear special ice skates. The ice skates have long blades. The blades are extra sharp. Speed skaters also wear tight body suits. The suits and skates help skaters reach high speeds in races. Some Olympic skaters can skate close to 40 miles per hour.
Reindeer live in cold, snowy places. They can be found in Norway, Finland, Sweden, Russia, and the state of Alaska. Reindeer have large hooves that spread apart as they walk. That helps keep the reindeer from sinking in the snow. Reindeer also use their hooves to dig in snow. They dig to find lichen, a type of fungus. They eat lichen in the winter when there is not much food. Reindeer eat grass, leaves, and mushrooms in the summer.
