RIO 2016 PARALYMPIC MASCOT
Tom, the Paralympic mascot of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games is a unique mixture of the Brazilian flora. He is able to constantly transform, with determination and joy growing and overcoming obstacles.
In addition to practising Paralympic sports, he is constantly on the move. He believes there is no obstacle too hard to overcome. He can pull anything from his big head of leaves to solve even the hairiest of problems. As the ambassador of the Paralympic Games, he will teach others to bring out their best.
