|Tiger into cat, Olympic style|
You might remember the 1988 Olympics, held in Seoul, South Korea. The mascot of the games was Hodori, a tiger, though he was presented as a frisky (meaning “very athletic”) house cat.
Hodori the tiger gained worldwide recognition through all the Olympic souvenir paraphernalia. But of course Koreans had been aware of him for centuries, since he was a key ﬁgure in numerous folk tales and legends.
