FISU Mascots

 

Named 'Copico', the first official Universiade mascot appeared in Jaca, Spain, during the 1981 Winter Universiade. It was a little cartoon character on skis. 'Copico' is derived from copa de nieve, Spanish for snowflake. Since then, FISU has had a long and rich history of delightful mascots, whom you can get to know here.
