TINA, MILO & THE FLO
Tina and Milo are the official Mascots of Milano Cortina 2026! Tina has a light coat and is the Mascot of the Winter Olympics 2026, while Milo has a dark coat and is the Mascot of the 2026 Winter Paralympics. Their names recall the two host cities of the Games: Milo is short for Milano, Tina for Cortina. Stoats, with their liveliness and speed, are the ideal animals to embody the contemporary Italian spirit that guides the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Milano Cortina 2026: they are curious by nature, have the surprising ability to change the colour of their fur according to the seasons, and the resilience necessary to adapt to a challenging habitat such as the mountains. A sister and a brother, Tina and Milo are similar but not identical, and carry a strong message of inclusion and optimism.
Tina is the Olympic Mascot. She was born in the mountains of Italy, among the green of summer meadows and the white of winter snow. She has a brother called Milo to whom she is very close: she spent all her childhood with him. She then decided to move to the city, because she had always been attracted to novelty and the unknown. Tina is convinced that differences are an asset and that we can only grow if we approach others with respect, openness and curiosity. She likes to explore, to try new things, to change. She is passionate about art and music and believes in the power of beauty and its transformative force. Nature is her home, and even though she lives in the city now, she does everything she can to protect it and keep it as beautiful as it was when she was born.
Milo is the Paralympic Mascot; he was born without a leg, but with a little ingenuity and a lot of willpower he learnt to use his tail instead, and to overcome all obstacles turning his diversity into a strength. He lives in the mountains, he is a hands-on type, and likes to create, fix, assemble, disassemble, invent... to build artefacts with the wood of his forests. For some time now, he has been specialising in making musical instruments that Tina can then play. Milo is lively and loves having fun.
