RIDDLE - Dragons and sea monsters

        Victor the Viking lived in a distant land inhabited by dragons and sea monsters.

        The dragon population later became a threat to the kingdom. The King, who married Victor's sister and made her his queen, announced a contest. The warrior who could kill the most number of dragons from sunrise to sunset of next Sunday would be declared winner and marry the King's only daughter.

        On the eve of the contest, Gringo the Gorgeous, first born of and heir to the King, slept early to conserve his energy with his sharpened ax beside him.

        Victor the Viking, who almost forgot his ax and shield, rode his black gelding into the forbidden forest and camped there overnight to gain a headstart.

        Abner the Able spent the night in his house sharpening his spatha and polishing his bronze shield. he had his squire prepare his stallion for the contest.

        Brav the Bold woke up very late the morning of the contest and had to ride his horse like crazy to catch up with the others.

        Igor the Terrible, the only warrior who used two weapons was able to kill 4 dragons with his ax and 5 dragons with his spear.

        At the wedding dinner hosted by the king later that evening, the winner, who killed more than a half dozen dragons with his ax, and his proud parents were honored by the King.

        The winner's horse was castrated and retired from duty. The winner's bronze shield was permanently displayed in the King's Hall.

        Who won the contest?
