继08年北京奥运和2010世博会之后,全世界同胞下一个关注目标将会是2012年伦敦奥运会。昨日,奥运会的吉祥物首度亮相公众。

The 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Mascots have been unveiled in London. On Wednesday, the public got a first hand look at the one-eyed, interactive creations from the digital age. 

2012年奥运会和残奥会宣布在英国伦敦举行。星期三,只有一只眼睛的数字时代吉祥物首次在公众面前亮相。

Named Wenlock and Mandeville, the pair owe their titles to 2 small towns in England.
这一对吉祥物的名字是英格兰两个小镇Wenlock和Mandeville.

The mascots are based on a story, where a welder used the last drops of steel from the final girder added to the new Olympic Stadium, to create the Olympic duo.
这对吉祥物的设计还有一个背后的故事:一个焊接工用尽最后一滴钢铁为奥运会浇铸成了新的奥林匹克体育场。

Their single eye represents a camera lens, which will help them see the world, and respond to it. At first glance, the mascots seem to have little in common with London or a British identity, but the small yellow lights on their heads are said to represent London's iconic black taxis.
这一只眼睛象征着摄像头,将带他们去看世界,并且做出反应。乍一看上去,这个吉祥物似乎与伦敦这座城市或者英国人的身份不相符,然而它们头上的黄色小灯代表着黑车的形象。

LOCOG Chairman, Sebastian Coe, says the mascots will play an important role in inspiring children and getting them involved in Olympic sports.
图标的设计者称这个图标在鼓舞儿童参与奥运中起到举足轻重的作用。
