The Outer Space Olympics
by Randall L. Whipkey
On the opening day of the 11,188th Outer Space Olympics, five athletes
from different planets of the galaxy earned Brilliance Medals for
placing first in various events, one winning the dangerously exciting
Speedsled Slalom. Given the Galactic Games report below, can you
solve the Logic Problem of each champion's home planet and the event
in which he, she, or it won the first-place medal made from the most
precious substance in the Universe?
- Wanobi Obikan also took home a Silm'tal Medal for finishing
second in the event won by the athlete from the planet Qewst.
- Again, the Galactic Games centered on the long-standing rivalry
between the Mercantile worlds and the planets of the Half-Light
Hegemony. Drmrby Y and the competitor from Pluto-617 were proud
to gain Brilliance Medals for their Mercantile home planets.

guests on IGSN (IntraGalactic Sports Network) the evening they
won their events.
- The Half-Light Hegemony partisans cheered wildly for the two

ride the huge, unruly beasts from the planet Mastoda through a
swampy obstacle course--isn't from Qewst or beautiful New Airth.
- Ariani Fayre, who isn't from a Mercantile planet, and the athlete
from Qewst exchanged Olympic holocubes in celebration of their
- The medalist from Kithra, a world devoted to peace and meditation,
didn't compete in Fazersword Fencing.
- Olympic champion Sirrah Launcelotta isn't a citizen of Pluto-617
or cold Qewst.
- The champion who is a citizen of New Airth, which doesn't belong
to the Half-Light Hegemony, didn't win the Brilliance Medal in
