Winning Wenlock




The Olympics are definitely on their way, the torch is making its way down to London and almost everyone I know is getting into the spirit of the event. I certainly can't wait for the games to start.

The London 2012 Mascots for the games are called Wenlock and Mandeville. They are name after Much Wenlock in Shropshire and  Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. The three points on Wenlock's head represent the three places on the podium. The pattern on his body with the logo of the games symbolises the  world coming to London in 2012. The shape on the front of his head represents the shape of the Olympic stadium roof.

We were asked to review Winning Wenlock. Winning Wenlock is dressed in his Union Jack outfit. Wenlock can be bought from retailers such as Argos and John Lewis for £29.99. He has poseable arms and a lovely gold medal around his neck. Fingers crossed we will see some of our athletes bringing home the gold for us too.



I think Wenlock is totally awesome as do the boys, we have all been singing along while he dances to the official Mascot song "On a Rainbow". The song is written and performed by Tom Fletcher, from McFly, his sister Carrie and the children from West Leigh Junior School. To see him dance and hear the song you need to press the button on his foot.

Here is Wenlock dancing.

We were really impressed with Winning Wenlock and his song, it definitely is catchy and you cant help but sing along to it too. We give Wenlock a 5/5 rating and will definitely be letting him cheer on team GB.
