Corona in China already in 2008! I knew it.

(Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

Let’s be real for a moment - the Beijing Olympics mascots were the best mascots of any Olympic games. This isn’t an “I like them better”, it’s that they’re the only ones where I would believe that a design firm was hired instead of someone forgetting their mascot submission was due and pulling their 4-year-old’s best drawing off the fridge to turn in.

EDIT: I left out crucial info for this to be relevant. The characters on the children’s crowns are the Beijing Olympics mascots.

London, were you like “Pokemon are cool, let’s make a weird bus pokemon thing”

Athens, just, come on. Also, WHY does one of them have weird circle-with-an-X boobs drawn on their shirt?! :man_facepalming:

BGA badges, 2018, from Junior Go Grade Badges | British Go Association

The British Go Association has introduced a series of badges, available for juniors, to reward their progression through the Go grades. Guidelines are available to organisers of youth clubs who issue badges so that youngsters with the same badge should be about the same ability. They cover grade bands of players from those who just learnt the rules through to those in the single kyu grades. The ultimate badge to collect, with the flame motif extra, is the one for making it to the Dan grades.

For more information contact Alison Bexfield (Youth Squad Coordinator) at ynews at britgo.org
