2010 Winter Games mascots: Quatchi, Miga and Sumi

Quatchi, a hockey-playing Sasquatch.
British Columbia's myths and legends have resulted in a trio of mascots for the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver:

  • Quatchi, a sasquatch who dreams of becoming a famous hockey goaltender
  • Miga, a snowboarding sea-bear 
  • Sumi, a spirit animal who flies with the wings of a thunderbird and runs on a black bear's legs
Mukmuk the marmot is the mascots' sidekick. He loves food. The characters were designed by Meomi Design of Vancouver and Los Angeles.
