View Full Version : Torino 2006 - Mascot launched

Sep 28th, 2004, 10:50 AM

Neve and Gliz, these are the mascots
of the up-coming Olympic Winter Games
of Torino 2006: the most original couple
in the history of the Olympics.

She, a soft, friendly and elegant
snowball. He a lively, playful ice cube. Neve and Gliz remind us, in the shapes
of their bodies and in sounds of their
names, the two elements indispensable
for the performance of the winter
disciplines: snow and ice.

Together they synthesize the highest
Italian and Olympic values: friendship
and enthusiasm, loyalty and good times, design and the capacity to innovate.

The mascots of the Olympic Winter
Games of Torino 2006 will give life
to the dream and to the challenge
of a planetary event rich with universally
recognized values.

I've just been on the official website www.torino2006.org (http://www.torino2006.org) where you can see a whole little movie with the mascots practising different winter sports... they're kinda cute and sweet... and of course, I guess my view is a tad biased ;)
