The London 2012 Olympic mascots Wenlock & Paralympic Mandevilles
These two-metre-tall figures have appeared on London's streets in the run up to the Olympic Games. They are made with the last drops of steel left over from the construction of the final support girder of the Olympic Stadium.

Wenlock's name is derived from the Shropshire village of Much Wenlock which hosted Wenlock Games that inspired Baron Pierre de Coubertin to create the modern Olympics.

Mandeville's name comes from the Stoke Mandeville Games, widely recognised as a forerunner of the Paralympic movement.
