    The Gomdoori, whose name is derived from the Korean word for “teddy bear”, were the Paralympic mascots for Seoul 1988. While bears are commonly associated with wisdom and courage, the pair is depicted with their legs tied together, symbolising the ability to overcome adversity through co-operation and to encourage mankind to work together peacefully and harmoniously.
