Beijing 2022 Winter Paralympic Games Mascot

By Will Imbo

Name

The name "Shuey Rhon Rhon (雪容融)" has several meanings. "Shuey" has the same pronunciation as the Chinese character for snow, while the first "Rhon" in Chinese Mandarin means to ‘to include, to tolerate’. The second "Rhon" means ‘to melt, to fuse’ and ‘warm.’ Combined, the full name of the mascot promotes the desire of having greater inclusion for people with impairments throughout society, and more dialogue and understanding between the cultures of the world.

Description

Shuey Rhon Rhon is a Chinese lantern child, whose design features elements from traditional Chinese paper cutting and Ruyi ornaments. The Chinese lantern itself is an ancient cultural symbol in the country, associated with harvest, celebration, prosperity and brightness.

The glow emanating from Shuey Rhon Rhon's heart (surrounding the Beijing 2022 Winter Paralympics logo) symbolises the friendship, warmth, courage and perseverance of Para athletes - traits that inspire millions of people around the world every day.
