Racing For The Gold was a series of short videos played as advertisement during the 2010 winter olympics. Each video had a narration by Gobber the Belch. All of these shorts are included on the second disc of the Deluxe Dragon Collection.
"Viking bobsledding requires three things: strength, courage, and a guy named Bob." - Gobber the Belch
Three different medals are given to vikings during their sports: for third place the horn medal, for second the granite medal, and for first the ham medal. When Snotlout is given the ham award, a Monstrous Nightmare snatches him. Ruffnut takes his place.
Everything we have in snowboarding today originated from Hiccup one fateful day. Hiccup accidentally starting snowboarding when he fell on a plank of wood. He found it worked as the first snowboard, and performed tricks, thus creating the half pipe, the rail grind, and, the last of his feats was the wipeout, when a Deadly Nadder caught him and dropped him into the snow.
Stoick and Gobber compete in skating, each with a small Gronckle on their back. Using the dragons' fire, the two take off, and Stoick wins. However, they keep going, with Gobber crashing into a large pile of snow and Stoick launched into space.
Fishlegs is launched by a catapult, through the sky, and into a glacier. He beats two other Vikings "by two feet." Even though he wins, a Terrible Terror he passed takes the medal.
- Hiccup has both his legs during the events, so it takes place before the movie.
- Tuffnut is the only main character that did not appear in any of these shorts.
