London Olympic 2012 Mascots

Wenlock and Mandeville

With only 18 months before the Olympics in London begin it is important for the British Peoples to rally behind the Olympics and to make them the best we can. We will be showing hospitality to every nation and together we can make this a time of great cultural learning and increase of international mutual understanding and respect as well as the focus of sporting prowess and fair play.

With businesses making sure it happens creating jobs and lasting local community resources. An army of volunteers supporting it and taking part gaining experience and giving a useful service so the Olympics happens more efficient and more friendly.

With interesting regional events scheduled enabling everyone to get involved locally. The merchandising of the games is interesting with this teapot as perhaps the most British iconic memento.

Loved the video introduction to the mascots Wenlock and Mandeville although Mandeville couldn’t help remind me of a certain Lord of spin…

  1. Much Wenlock in Shropshire UK was home to Dr WilliamPenny Brookes who inspired a new Olympic dream in 1850, hence the Olympic mascot Wenlock. Stoke Mandeville Hospital world renowned for treating spinal injuries has been the inspiration for the Paralympics mascot Mandeville.
