Vinicius and Tom are the official mascots for the 2016 Olympic Games and 2016 Paralympic Games, respectively.


They were both born from the spirits the people of Rio de Janeiro felt when it was announced on October 2, 2009 that it was hosting the 2016 Olympics.

Vinicius combines aspects of cats, monkeys, and birds, and can stretch his arms and legs to infinite length.

Tom combines aspects of Brazilian plant life, and can pull anything out of his hair to solve any problem.
