Twin baby pandas join the Olympic family
Two baby pandas were officially named today by the President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Thomas Bach.
They join their ‘Olympian‘ cousin giant panda Cobi who was named after the mascot of the Olympic Games Barcelona 1992.
The breeding centre, which aims to rescue and protect the endangered giant panda species, is now the home of an Olympic giant panda family composed of Colleen, the daughter of Cobi, and his twin granddaughters born in early 2015.
