November 27, 2007
   The mascots for the 2010 Olympic winter games (February 12 – 29th 2010 in Vancouver/ Whistler) and paralympic games (March 12 – 25th 2010) were revealed today in Surrey, BC.  If you would like to watch the presentation you can see a group of twitchy little kids on stage making the announcement at the ceremony, just click on this->  CTV news story Mascots unveiled.
 
  If you would rather pluck out your eyes then watch the ceremony, then here is the summary.
 
  There are 3 mascots and one friend of the mascots.  Pictures from Canadian Press and official website.
 They are;
 
 
Sumi who represents the paralympic games and is a spirit animal that flies with the wings of a native thunderbird.
                                                                                       
 
Quatchi a young sasquatch with a long brown beard and blue earmuffs
 
Miga is a snowboarding sea-bear – part killer whale and part kermode bear
 
They love their sports!
                
 
and their friend or sidekick,
 Mukmuk,a small and friendly Vancouver Island marmot who always supports and cheers loudly for his friends during games and races.
