A message from Berlino, mascot of the 12th IAAF World Championships in Athletics berlin 2009™
Hello and Welcome!

I am Berlino, the mascot of the 12th IAAF World Championships in Athletics berlin 2009™. Thanks to the help of all of you I am now having a name!

Thank you again to everybody around the world who suggested a name for me and please don’t be sad if we did not consider your suggestions in the voting. Also thanks to everybody, who voted at the Top-five voting for my name. I am really happy to have a name now and that you can call me whenever you see me on my next mission and I am looking forward to running into you in person somewhere soon. As I am basically a happy and fun-loving bear don’t be shy if we get our pictures taken together somewhere, and you agree, I would love to put them online here for you to download.

In addition, should you have some photos you have taken of me, or if you have any questions or comments, I would be thrilled if you would send them to


Your Berlino
