7 QUATCHI The three Olympic mascots are Sumi, Miga and Quatchi. Mukmuk is our “electronic” mascot. Quatchi is very shy or timid but he loves to travel with friends. His favourite hobby is photography and loves hockey. His dream is to become a famous goaltender. He loves to try all kinds of food. His favourite colour is chill blue. He comes from the mysterious forests of British Columbia. I’m like Quatchi because we both like hockey. I was on a hockey team last year. My team name was the “Blues”. We beat the “Canucks” 20 to nothing. My best friend Tyler is on the “Canucks” team but not the NHL “Canucks” team. We played. I got a hat-trick. A hat- trick is when you score 3 goals. Quatchi is working hard to be an Olympic goalie someday. His favourite colour is chill blue. I’m like Quatchi because we both like hockey. I was on a hockey team last year.
