    1. I know, I'm not sure what they're supposed to be either. I saw the torch when it pased through Colchester - we were right at the spot where they handed over from one torch bearer to the next. It's on my blog here http://www.40schic.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/olympic-torch-comes-to-colchester.html

    1. It certainly was. The hand of the mascot waved at the crowd as the coach passed by. The kids loved it. They all had torches they had made at school - they looked lovely.

  4. who ever thought that was a good idea for an olympic emblem/character - whatever it is - wants sacking. It's just too weird.
    Weird.

    1. Thank you. I can't help but wonder who comes up with these mascots and how - and if they ran out of ideas!

    1. It was, it was one of the coaches involved in the torch relay. There was a huge convoy, mainly police cars and bikes, but also floats by Coca-Cola, Lloyds Bank and Samsung, as well as a camera car and coach for the torch bearers after they'd done their bit.

    1. I know, it's the Olympic mascot. I don't know why it looks like that or why they chose that particular design. Perhaps somebody knows and could tell me? Thanks for your comment, have a great week!
