Moment to Shine

The Olympic torch run

The International School of Aberdeen was chosen as an official venue for an advance entertainment party for the torch run.

Wenlock, the one-eyed official Olympic mascot

Wenlock’s name is inspired by Much Wenlock in Shropshire, England, where the Wenlock Olympian Society held its first Olympian Games in 1850, regarded as an inspiration for the modern Olympic games. 
He has five friendship bracelets on his wrist. Each bracelet takes the colour of an Olympic ring. 
The three points on his head represent the three places on the podium. The pattern on his body with the logo of the games symbolises the whole world coming to London in 2012. The shape on the front of his head represents the shape of the Olympic stadium roof. 
In the run-up to the games Wenlock hopes to make as many friends as possible and always looks on the bright side of life.
