MarbleLympics 2016 Edit

The Savage Speeders started the MarbleLympics 2016 season off fairly inauspiciously, grabbing a respectable but modest 5th place in the first event, Balancing, but this was only the beginning. The Savage Speeders 'sped' past all the competition in the Relay Race, picking up their first gold medal of the games. After only accumulating 2 total points throughout the next 3 events, the Savage Speeders were starting to be overlooked. At least that was the case until Velocity won the team another gold medal in the Aquatic Race. Then again in the 10 Meter Sprint with Rapidity. At this point, the Savage Speeders had really made a name for themselves, but they wouldn't be picking up any more points until the final event of the 2016 season, Hurdles. Every single team was on edge during the Hurdles event, but none were more nervous than the leading 4 teams, Mellow Yellow, Thunderbolts, Team Momo, and the Savage Speeders. When the gate lifted, all 4 marbles started rolling as fast as they possibly could, but it seemed as though Yellup from Mellow Yellow had won. However, the slow-motion cameras revealed that it was actually the Savage Speeders who had won, their own marble, Speedy, had won the final gold of the MarbleLympics, and in turn had won their team the entire MarbleLympics season.

MarbleLympics 2017 Edit

Because the Savage Speeders had won the previous MarbleLympics season, they guaranteed themselves a spot in the 2017 season and did not have to participate in the grueling qualifier, but they still went to the qualifiers to cheer on their fellow marbles and greet the new coming teams. After their victory in the 2016 season, the Savage Speeders had been the center of many insults, angry fans accusing them of doping or using steroids, so coming into the 2017 season they tried to keep a low profile, and they succeeded, only accumulating 27 points throughout the course of the first 3 events, and sitting in 10th place in the standings.

Savage Speeders after their gold medal in the relay race event

Once they came back to the track, however, things changed. Savage Speeders picked up a silver medal in both the 5 Meter Sprint and Hurdles events, rocketing them up to a 9 point lead in the overall standings. Then again they began to feel the heat. The insults and accusations came once again, but they ignored it, grabbing a gold medal in the Relay Race event, stretching their lead by upwards of 20 points. Savage Speeders hovered around a 20 point lead for both the Block Pushing and High Jump events. The teams then went back outside for the Steeplechase, and the Savage Speeders crushed it. They watched their competitors both fail and succeed until it was their turn to go. Speedy and Whizzy took the lead, but, Swifty and Rapidly were having trouble keeping up, then they accomplished something incredible. Since only 3 of the 4 marbles count for the score, Rapidly bounced on top of Swifty, causing him to ricochet forward and catch up Speedy and Whizzy, earning the team a gold medal. Between both the Archery and Underwater Race the Savage Speeders would only gain 7 points, and O'rangers would nearly catch them, with only a 10 point difference, the Savage Speeders finally had some competition, right before the finale.

Savage Speeders went to the Sand Race with low expectations, they wanted to win, but they knew that they couldn't roll as well in the sand, they were out of their element. Unfortunately for them, they were right, they couldn't make it to the finals. O'rangers, on the other hand, gained a silver medal, giving them more than enough points to take the championship. For the first time since the fourth event, Savage Speeders were knocked out from first place. The Speeders ended the 2017 Season in second place with 150 points.

MarbleLympics 2018 Edit

Savage Speeders3

2018 Savage Speeders logo

Savage Speeders have already guaranteed themselves a spot in MarbleLympics 2018 due to their 2nd place finish in MarbleLympics 2017 as the top 4 from the previous season qualify. They participated in the "Practice Tournament", a tournament for pre-qualified teams against hosts Snowballs, Mellow Yellow and 2017 Champions O'rangers.

Savage Speeders had waves of good and bad finishes. Savage Speeders started the season with a bronze medal in the 5 meter ice dash event, behind Oceanics and rookie team Hazers. Despite their appalling last-place finish in the Ski Jump, they claimed a silver medal in the following Halfpipe event. They finished 13th place in the Bobsled but claimed another silver medal in the following 20 meter speed skating event. After a 12th place finish in the Team Persuit, they yet again claimed their 3rd silver medal of the season in the Snow rally event. After this event, The Speeders were in 1st place.

However, after a 2nd last place finish in curling dropped them back to 3rd place in the standings. Despite finishing in the podium 2 more times in the last events, they fell 1 point short to the Champions, Midnight Wisps.

Main TournamentEdit

The team started the tournament with 2 gold medals. Afterwards the team slipped away, placing in the top 8 only 3 times in the next 7 events, sitting in 7th after the hurdles race. A bronze medal in the Hubelino Maze and a 4th place in the dirt race, saw the Savage Speeders climb back up to 4th, 20 points adrift of third-placed team, the Hazers. A string of mediocre finishes saw the Savage Speeders lose out on 4th to Mellow Yellow and the team would finish in 5th, which was the Savage Speeders' worst result ever in a MarbleLympics.
