participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends.



2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward? 



3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for

replanted every year.  What are the only two perennial vegetables?

The Yanks probably use the term for trainers.

Ski's, snowshoes and stilts aren't, technically worn on the feet. They're merely strapped/latched to the boots which are being worn.
