Official Mascot introduced to the world
posted on Sunday, 22nd January 2017 - [ 748 views ]
 

The mascot was officially launched as part of Brazilian broadcaster TV Globo’s weekly Fantástico entertainment show, where he was welcomed by Brazilian football legend and member of the LOC Management Board, Ronaldo.

“I’m delighted to welcome such an important member to the 2014 team,” said Ronaldo. “The mascot will play a key ambassadorial role in the next two years. I’m sure he will inspire many young football fans in Brazil and all over the world with the great passion which he has for the sport and for his country.”

The introduction followed a week of activities in which the mascot made a series of unofficial visits all over Brazil. This included the distribution of two thousand and fourteen blue balls, representing his unique blue shell, on the Boa Viagem beach in Recife, a meeting with his new friend Ronaldo in São Paulo, as well as high-profile introductions to Brazilian football fans through digital appearances during several live football broadcasts.
The Official Mascot also has his own official song, “Tatu Bom de Bola”, sung by Brazilian music star Arlindo Cruz.

The final mascot design was chosen after FIFA and the LOC had analysed 47 different proposals created by six different Brazilian agencies. The designs were further analysed through extensive research carried out amongst its primary target audience, Brazilian children between the ages of five and twelve, with the favourite being the armadillo, created by 100%Design.

“The fact that the three-banded armadillo is a vulnerable species is very fitting,” said FIFA Secretary General Jérôme Valcke. “One of the key objectives through the 2014 FIFA World Cup is to use the event as a platform to communicate the importance of the environment and ecology. We are glad to be able to do so with the help of a mascot who I’m sure will be much-loved, not only in Brazil, but all over the world.”

The Brazilian population will now have the chance to give the Official Mascot a name by taking part in a public voting campaign which will run up until the middle of November. The three options, which were decided upon after a vote by a high-profile judging committee including Bebeto, Arlindo Cruz, Thalita Rebouças, Roberto Duailibi and Fernanda Santos, are Amijubi – a representation of friendliness and joy – and two names which link to the ecological message, Fuleco and Zuzeco.

The Official Mascot is the latest in a line of iconic characters who have gone down in World Cup history. Following in the footsteps of the likes of Zakumi in South Africa in 2010, Germany’s Goleo in 2006 and all the way back to the days of World Cup Willie in 1966, the mascot is one of the key visuals of a FIFA World Cup, providing FIFA, the LOC and other stakeholders with a strong and exciting brand asset through which promotional campaigns can be activated and target audiences can be engaged.

Fitness and exercise are an important part of leading a healthy life. People who exercise regularly have healthier hearts, and are less prone to problems related to obesity as well as depression and other mental illnesses. Read on to find out how you can set up your own fitness program and start to feel great! The best fitness tip for building up your arms is to work opposite muscles in opposite sets of each other. The best example would be to work the triceps and then the biceps. Each has the opportunity to rest while the other is being worked. This minimizes your time and maximizes your workout. Do not be afraid to motivate yourself before a work-out. There is no audience and no judgment if you want to give yourself a little pep-talk on the way into the gym. The benefits are very real; when you exercise with positivity you work out more successfully. Tell yourself you are going to have a great work-out and you probably will. To get the most out of your cardio workout, try interval training. Go as fast as you can for two minutes, and then rest for a minute. By moving your heart rate up and down like this, your workout is maximized, which means those calories are getting burned quicker than ever. A great way to get fit is to consult with a professional bodybuilder. A lot of bodybuilders have their own web sites where they offer a service that gives you the opportunity to pay to have your own consultation with them. You can get their experienced advice on your diet and workout routine. While you may be a decent fitness enthusiast, it takes time and practice to become a great fitness enthusiast. You should know that you are never done learning about the activity or what you can do to better your skills. With the previous tips in mind, you are well on your way to becoming a great fitness enthusiast. [url=https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/]https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/[/url]
