#TheMoment of the Week: Mascots Bonnie and Berlino meet for first time
Berlino first wowed audiences nine years ago at the Berlin 2009 World Championships. The fuzzy mascot was such a hit with spectators that he was brought back to entertain the masses at the Internationales Stadionfest (ISTAF) and ISTAF Indoor championships a few years later.
And now Berlin 2018, Berlino’s biggest stage yet.
Berlino joins Bonnie the Seal, who will be the mascot for co-hosts Glasgow 2018, who are organising six of the seven sport of the European Championships.
Bonnie is a young, female harbour seal. She is gregarious, has bags of energy, confidence and is very agile. She is adventurous which coupled with her natural curiosity allows her to give just about anything a go!
