Vinicius was born on October 2, 2009, when it was announced that Rio would host the XXXI Olympic Games.

He is a mixture of all the Brazilian animals. Vinicius can stretch and stretch himself, as much as he wants. And since he’s a mixture of Brazilian animals, he can do all the best things that they can do: he can run fast, jump high and be strong. He can also imitate the voice of any animal.

His mission is to spread joy and celebrate the friendship that flourishes between people from all over the world at the Olympic Games.
