Bravo Attends Mascot Contest in Kaohsiung
The tug-of-war event of the 2016 All Taiwan Mascot PK Contest took place at the Shihdai Boulevard in Kaohsiung City on September 11. Bravo, the mascot for the 2017 Summer Universiade in Taipei, is taking part in this competition to challenge other lovable characters from across Taiwan.
The team from Taipei, led by the Chairperson of the Taipei Universiade Organization Committee Su Li-chiung, seeks to promote the upcoming sports event to the audience in southern Taiwan while making Bravo the most popular Formosan black bear on the island.
During his address, the Deputy Mayor of Kaohsiung City Hsu Li-ming called upon the audience to support Universiade like the way they supported the 2009 World Games in Kaohsiung. Chairperson Su also presented a Bravo doll to the mascot of Kaohsiung City Hua Ma as a token of friendship.
Describing Bravo as cute, Su stressed her confidence in Taipei’s mascot and believes the bear will take first place. She hinted that Bravo has been taking part in serious training in recent month, hoping to show the public his best performance during the Mascot parade on October 1.
She also called upon the audience to cast their daily vote for Bravo during the online mascot contest (see below for link) between September 12 and October 4.
