Voting for the Innsbruck 2012 Mascot Design Competition closed, and it was neck and neck right up until the final minutes between the Goat and the Ibex. But in the end, the public made their choice and the Mountain Goat was declared the winning design. This design will form the basis of the Innsbruck 2012’s mascot which will be unveiled early next year.
The designers of the mascot are Florencia Demaria (24 years old) & Luis Abbiati (25 years old) from Argentina. The modern and youthful design of the Mountain Goat also combines tradition (he’s wearing the lederhosen, the traditional Tyrolean outfit) and aims at inspiring young people to do their best at the Youth Olympic Games.
Watch out for the presentation of the Innsbruck 2012 mascot early 2011 at the “one year to go” celebrations!
