MascotsThe weird looking Olympic mascots are Phevos (male) and Athena (female). This brother and sister pair represent the spirit of the Olympics and connect the modern games with their ancient origin. Their bell-shaped appearance is inspired by ancient Greek dolls. Also of note, the game's load screens feature the official logos of the events, showing the Athens mascots in action.
