    Mandeville is one half of the mascot team Wenlock & Mandeville that were created for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Formed from the last steel girder of the Olympic Stadium and made of polished steel to reflect the appearances and personalities of people they meet, their eyes are cameras and the yellow lights on their foreheads are reminiscent of a London Taxi. Mandeville, the Paralympic mascot, was named after the Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire, the birthplace of the Stoke Mandeville Games, the predecessor of today’s Paralympic Games. The three spikes on its helmet symbolise the three Agitos of the Paralympic logo, and as a mascot, Mandeville symbolises friendship.
