Best Olympic Mascots

The Best Summer and Winter Olympic mascots youth and proper games.

The Top TenXW

1Miga & Quatchi (Vancouver 2010)

The Vancouver 2010 mascots were absolutely adorable - if Mukmuk had been granted "full mascot" status, I would have given them 100 per cent!

The pair are both creatures of British Columbian mythology along the aboriginal peoples. - Chimpchomp

4Cobi (Barcelona 1992)

Used as a symbol around the host city he was especially popular with Catalonians. - Chimpchomp

5Vucko (Sarajevo 1984)

A skiing wolf despite his species he is rather cute and according to the IOC "he changed the general perception of wolves." - Chimpchomp

Great mascot, simple, positive and funny. Always stayed in the harts of local people and, I guess, worldwide. Shows the spirit of the town, and the reagion

6The Fuwa (Beijing 2008)

These cute little things actually represent the animals of China and I love them for it. I mean, panda! You can't get more Chinese than a panda, and I'm Chinese-Canadian (no I don't like them just because they are Chinese)!

7Olly, Syd, Millie (Sydney 2000)
8Hodori and Housini (Seoul 1988)

Hodori was generally much better known than Housini they were chosen as tigers are common in Korean legends. - Chimpchomp

9Athena and Phevos (Athens 2004)

Although nothing spectacular, Athena and Phevos were a simple cycladic-art doll inspired mascot duo. The nearly identical male and female mascots represented equality, participation, fair play, co-operation and brotherhood. Simple, eternal values.

10Waldi (Munich 1972)

The first official mascot, he featured several colours but not red or black due to the fact the designer did not want people to associate him with the Nazi party. - Chimpchomp

The Contenders

11Lyo and Merly (Singapore 2010)

Lyo the lion after the lion that was said to roam Singapore and Merly a merlion, iconic to Singapore as they are used as statues and fountains all over the island. - Chimpchomp

12Neve and Gliz (Torino 2006)

These two are simple but memorable and many children enjoy using them to represent the olympics years later. - Chimpchomp

13Yoggl (Innsbruck 2012)
14Sam the Eagle (LA 1984)

Designed by a member of the Disney company, he represents the United States however he is confused with several other disney characters that are eagles named Sam. - Chimpchomp
