Cooly goes Athletics: An Iconic Mascot for Zürich 2014
Zürich 2014 is proud to have a very special ambassador: Cool cow Cooly - a crowd favourite, wherever and whenever it appears. The happy, sometimes slightly overexcited Swiss cow fascinates both fans and athletes. Just as the future competitors, Cooly takes its preparation for the championships seriously, and will no doubt be ready to team up with spectators to support the competitors.
