"Bear Bravo" to PR the 2017 Taipei Universiade is too cute

Winning medals at the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020 may be a competitor in the Taipei Universiade Games in 2017. At the Rio Olympics which closed the curtain the other day, the Japanese team won 41 medals in history and all the archipelagoes got excited a lot. There are many people who have looked forward to the Tokyo Olympics in 4 years. If it is, it is necessary to check the Universiade in the summer of 2017.

Hello,Takuya SAITO who ran 130,000 km with 150 countries @ Challer Manis. Visited Taiwan in July 2016, which became the second consecutive year for the second consecutive year. A new bear character was active in Taipei City. The new face that was not in the last year was the PR character of the Universiade.

◆ Universiade
UniversiadeIs an international general event for sports targeting students and is said to be "Olympic Games for Students" and is held every two years. In Japan, it has been held in Tokyo, Kobe, Fukuoka and Sapporo (winter).

Following Kazan (Russia) in 2013, Gwangju (Korea) in 2015, the 29th summer Universiade will be held in Taipei (Taiwan) in 2017. In Chinese, it seems to be "Taipei World Otsukaichi Kaikai". There is also a way to abbreviate "Taebuku Great Truck".

At Taipei Universiade, which began on August 19, 2017,
· 14 mandatory competitions: land, basketball, fencing, soccer, gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, judo, table tennis, taekwondo, tennis, volleyball, swimming, dive, water polo
· Selection competitions 7 events: archery, badminton, baseball, golf, roller skating, weightlifting, martial arts
· Public competition 1st event: Billiards
The total of 22 kinds of fighting will be fought.

◆ Bear Bravo
It is a character of a bear named "Bear Bravo" to serve this Taipei Universiade's PR. I am troubled how to read "Xióng zàn". In Japanese, "Kuma bravo" is perfect, but how to call is not clear. Although I was treated as an intern at first, I was evaluated steadily and now I am working as an official mascot.

This illustration also features, with face always facing sideways like Crayon Shin-chan and pepper pig.

◆ Costume figure
Although this is Kumaki Bravo, it has also appeared in various events in Taipei in costume form. Unlike the illustration, it was the first impression of "subtle eyes and subtle", but it is strange that it seems to be pretty enough to observe it. Now totally captivated. I was doing activities that followed Kumamoto's Kumamon.

There is also a facebook page.
