Moose, Weasel or Lynx? - Lillehammer 2016 Mascot finalists announced

One of these animals will be the mascot for the Lillehammer 2016 Youth Olympic Games! Entries from all over the world came flooding in and following what must have been a difficult decision, we are left with three YOGtastic finalists, and it is up to you to pick a winner.

 The jury consisted of Simen Staalnacke, one of the founders of a Norwegian clothing line, Julie Strømsvåg, sports anchor of Norwegian Olympic Broadcaster TV2, Paralympic athlete Birgit Skarstein and design student, Marianne Ågotnes.

 “I am really looking forward to see the mascot whizz down the half pipe during the YOG,” says an enthusiastic Staalnacke – and so are we!
