EYOF Bakuriani 2025 Mascot Reveal and Official Anthem presentation

On February 28th Mascot reveal and Official Anthem presentation was held in Bakuriani. Eyof 2025 created a pleasant and vibrant environment with the general sponsor „Coca-cola“. The sponsor treated guests with delicious drinks and also visitors had opportunity to taste various Georgian food. Especially for this day both teams of Coca-cola and OC created fun activities and beautiful photo zones for the guests. Attendants were gifted EYOF Bakuriani 2025 branded gifts and souveniers.

We’re glad special guests from CoComm attended this important event. EOC Executive Committee Member and Chair of the EYOF Commission Member Liney Halldorsdottir and Chair of the Bakuriani 2025 CoComm Florin Misca were present at the unveiling.

Appearance of the official mascot of EYOF Bakuriani 2025 -„GUNDA“ was the most exciting moment during the event. Everyone enjoyed dancing, taking photos and hugging „Gunda“.

Meet „GUNDA“:

The name ‘Gunda’ means ‘snowball’ in Georgian, perfectly capturing the Caucasus Mountains’ snowy essence.

Gunda, the majestic Caucasian lynx, calls these high mountains home. Here, the air is crisp, and the snow is deep. Coincidentally, this year, the EYOF is happening right in his neighborhood.

Its remarkable ability to glide gracefully through the snow and its piercing gaze symbolize the very qualities that young Olympians rely on strength, determination, and precision. Those are the characteristics that Young Olympians rely on. Gunda is here to inspire and remind them that they can conquer their snowy challenges just like him.

But there’s more to Gunda than meets the eye. Its name is also tied to the snowball game, a team activity that promotes unity and friendship among youth from various countries and cultures.

Gunda embodies the spirit of youth and unity. Just like a snowball made from the purest snow, our team wants everyone to remember that, in the world of sports, the most important thing is to remember to have fun and enjoy the adventure alongside your fellow athletes.

In the central park of Bakuriani The night show band delivered a performance of „SHINE“ – official anthem of the festival, which excited every guest at the event. They also performed people’s favourite songs and held a great live concert. After the performance DJ continued to take care on attendants’ mood.

During the mascot reveal and official anthem presentation, the chairman of OC, Mr. Mamuka Khabareli remarked this significant milestone. He also provided guests with the information about EYOF Bakuriani 2025 and the preparation of the festival. EOC EYOF Commission Chair Ms Halldorsdottir said: “It has been fantastic to visit Bakuriani to see both the preparations that are ongoing and to feel the enthusiasm from Georgians, who are excited to host our Winter EYOF.
