Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s YOGGL!

YOGGL was a huge hit at the European Handball Championship qualifying match between Austria and Germany at the Olympiahalle in Innsbruck this week where he made his first public appearance.

Dressed in his trademark dungarees, the official mascot for the Innsbruck 2012 Youth Olympic Games, who lives in the Austrian mountains, remained diplomatic cheering for both sides.

Typically a shy animal, the Alpine chamois showed no signs of nerves getting the better of him as he entertained the crowd at halftime before meeting and greeting his fans. YOGGL’s trusty team of helpers was also on hand to give out YOG goodies to his new friends.

Keep an eye out for YOGGL in the coming months. He could be popping up in a place near you!
