Global Winter Games Mascots

Beijing 2022 Introduce the Olympic and Paralympic Mascots

— September 18, 2019 — Lifestyle
Beijing 2022 marks the next global Winter Olympic and Paralympic games and recently the official mascots of the event have been unveiled. An adorable panda bear named Bing Dwen Dwen and a lantern character Shuey Rhon Rhon will be representing the winter games as the goodwill ambassadors.

Bing Dwen Dwen represents the winter sports as 'Bing' is the Chinese translation of 'ice' and 'Dwen Dwen' is a common nickname in Chinese culture for children as it implies health, cuteness, and ingenuousness. The panda wears a ice body suit -- this is meant to represent the mental and physical strength of the Olympic athletes and symbolize purity. Shuey Rhon Rhon is the official mascot of the Paralympic games. The name promotes inclusion as 'Rhon' means 'to include' and 'Shuey' is the translation of 'snow.' The Chinese lantern is an important motif in the culture as it is associated with Chinese New Year. It symbolizes celebration, prosperity, and harvest.
