Marble League 2017 Edit

The Gliding Glaciers were chosen for the 2017 Marblelympics but were disqualified before the qualifications began, as the team can be easily confused with the Jawbreakers. They were replaced by the Quicksilvers for the 2017 competition. The Purple Stars were also disqualified for unrelated reasons.

Marble League 2018 Edit

The Gliding Glaciers were cleared to compete in Marble League 2018 and competed in the qualifiers. They were deliberately placed in a different group to the Jawbreakers. The Gliding Glaciers performed poorly and failed to place in the top 3 in any of the four qualifying events. They competed in Group B.

Event Participant Final Result Placing Points Overall Standing

Snow Race Glidy DNF 7th 2 8th

Halfpipe All 37.43 sec. 4th 5 8th

The team achieved an amazing third place in the 100 Meter Water Race, following the Jungle Jumpers and the Limers, overpowering much stronger opponents. It was the highest point of their professional career so far.

Retirement Edit

During the Amazing Maze Marble Race it was announced that the team were retiring and would not try to take part in the MarbleLympics 2019 Qualifiers. The team disbanded due to their failure to qualify for Marble League 2018, a winter themed competition.[1]
