Hello, I’m Wenlock, the official mascot for the London 2012 Olympic Games. I’m looking for someone to take me on a journey until the Games begin. I’m sure we’ll have lots of fun together – and you can pick which sport we do next! BRDid you know that my name is inspired by Much Wenlock, a small town in Shropshire that is at the heart of Olympic history? In the 19th century, Baron Pierre de Coubertin was invited there to watch the Much Wenlock Games, which were inspired by the Olympic Games of ancient Greece.
The Wenlock 20cm soft toy has been designed especially for the London 2012 Olympic Games as an official mascot of this event. The toy has been named after Much Wenlock, which is a town in Shropshire where Baron Pierre de Coubertin was invited to watch the Much Wenlock Games, inspired by the ancient Olympic Games.
