Meeting the Olympic Mascot!

This afternoon some children from Y5 and Y6 were invited to a special 
event at Coppull Primary School, where they were able to meet
the London 2012 Olympic mascot, Wenlock.


Unfortunately, Mandeville, who is the official Paralympics mascot, was unable to attend as he was busy meeting children at another school.


As well as having the chance to meet Wenlock,
we were also able to ask him a few questions whilst we were there.
We found out that he likes to throw the discus, his favourite athlete is Usain Bolt and that he is really looking forward to London hosting the Olympics next year.


It was great to meet Wenlock - we had a fantastic time!

Did you know?

The mascots are named after the Shropshire town of Much Wenlock, which held a forerunner of the current Olympic Games, and Stoke Mandeville Hospital,
a facility in Buckinghamshire that initially organised the Stoke Mandeville Games,
the precursor of the Paralympic Games.
