Arctic_Pony (known as Pony on the forums) was relatively unheard of until he signed up as a speedrun competitor for Blur 4. Pony submitted some respectable speedruns, and convincingly earned a 2nd place qualification behind Kool-Aid for the Final 8. He initially lost his qualifying final match to vankusss before capitalizing on his second chance by defeating golfkid in a semi-final. Pony was then matched up against a highscoring veteran, ska, in the preliminary final and clocked a faster time, giving him a grand final berth against established speedrunner and the number-one qualifier, Kool-Aid. Pony defeated Kool-Aid in the Grand Final with an incredible run to secure the speedrunning championship.
