Meet YOGGL, Innsbruck 2012's mascot!
YOGGL, Innsbruck 2012's mascot, was presented to the public at the opening of the Youth Olympic Games Snow Festival in the center of Innsbruck on 4th February.
YOGGL is an Alpine chamois who lives at moderately high altitudes in the steep, rugged and rocky Karwendel Mountains between Innsbruck and Seefeld. His name "YOGGL" (pronounced just like in YOG) is based on the rustic nickname "Joggl" for Jakob, which is a traditional and very common Tyrolean name, adjusted with a "Y" at the beginning. The name contains the abbreviation "YOG", making the mascot part of the Youth Olympic Games. He symbolizes life in Alpine regions and will raise awareness of respect for nature and our natural resources, like all the "Mountain Joggls" do.
Marking the 35th anniversary of the Innsbruck 1976 Olympic Winter Games Opening Ceremony, concerts were held at the Snow Festival in Innsbruck as part of a weekend full of sport, including showcasing the 15 winter sport disciplines on the Innsbruck 2012 sports program in the city center. Visitors had the opportunity to try out a bobsleigh simulator and a snow ramp built especially for the Festival. On the ice rink at Sparkassenplatz, they could test their skills at ice hockey, figure skating and curling.
