Update November 27, 2007: The mascots have been revealed, read more here.
A big huggable bear? A bird of some kind? Perhaps a giant inukshuk come to life? Just what exactly will the Vancouver 2010 Olympic mascot look like?
It’s a closely guarded Olympic secret! The designs have been drawn and redrawn for more than a year, and tested and retested before special audiences across the continent. But finally, later this month, we’ll get to see the 2010 Winter Olympic mascots. [News1130]
I’m seriously scared, I have no idea what to expect but in my opinion Vancouver’s got pretty great mascots so far. Fin is charismatic, full of energy and just plain crazy. Then there’s Jack, he’s pretty lovable and has some great dance moves and who can forget Expo Ernie – he rules.
To view what has passed for an Olympic mascot in past years they have an archive gallery available.
I gotta say, it might be hard to top “The Friendlies” for Beijing 2008. I personally like HuanHuan’s fiery spirit and can-do attitude.
But have Vancouver 2010 organizers found their true creative genius to come up with an image we’ll all come to know very well over the next few years? I guess we’ll all find out soon enough.
