Here is the new ugly mascot for the winter youth Olympic

Recommended Posts

Hmmm. I dunno, I find him quite appealing really. But as a cartoon character, not for an Olympic mascot. He looks far too weedy. Does he have a name?

I agree with Rob, though. 1000 times better than Innsbruck's etch-a-scetch pagodoa logo.

*facepalm* Lyo and Merly are way better than this...and to be honest i'm not convinced with the other proposals at all.

Aw well, still better than the logo.

I's still rate goat boy better than Nagano's Snowlets or Torino's Neve and Glitz, though.

Mmmh... It reminds me of Phineas & Ferb :unsure: It's a mascot to laugh at on TV, not to be inspiring, as they want.

The proposal made by Sabrina Tay looks far better.

Agree.

@nobase:

The first is a copy of the style of Salt Lake's mascots, the second are a hybrid of Beijing's ghost faces and those awful Neve and Gliz of Torino.

Oh well, there can really be no denying: We live in an era of mascot cr*p, with only few commendable exceptions.

Oh, and there's even something from Vancouver's mascots in the left mascot of the second design. Gosh, those creative people are really creative when they conceive their concepts by mixing up all Olympic mascots of the past.

^^ Not mentioning Austrians would probably have complained about the design because it was too ''asian'' just like the vancouverites did back in 2007 :lol:

Winter games (in their youth or normal versions) are for brave athletes, this mascot looks so coward and chicken, it doesn't really represent the winter olympic spirit.

I love YOGGL. I am struggling to find that ugly 'chalet roof' Innsbruck 2012 logo on their website. I think the IOC have killed it.

Also check out the next summer YOG host - Nanging!

Nanging 2014?

This is a mascot for babies.. not for the youth that's going to participate in the Youth Olypics
