Odds and Ends: Moosestache the moose at TO2015
Meet Moosestache: a life-size moose that has been welcoming TO2015 athletes, volunteers and officials in the Pan Am Athletes’ Village.
The tradition to host a moose at the Games began in Vancouver 2010. The Canadians saw Team Great Britain had an awesome phone booth at the Beijing 2008 games. It was time for Canada to step it up. In the spirit of sports, the moose mascot was born and stands tall outside the Canadian residence in the Athletes’ Village.
This particular moose name was chosen by Canada’s water polo team as part of a contest. Moosestache was selected on July 10 before the Pan Am Opening Ceremony.
Wait a second, what about Komak?
