Read the text and do the task.
The first official Olympic mascot was created for the Summer Games in Munich in 1972. Olympic mascots help Olympic spirit spread everywhere, introduce the history and culture of the host city and give the event a festive atmosphere.
More than 100 designers, artists and agencies took part in a competition in 2008, where Wenlock and Mandeville, the mascots for the London 2012 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games, were chosen. Wenlock takes his name from the town of Much Wenlock in Shropshirein England, which still hosts the traditional Much Wenlock Games. Mandeville, the Paralympic mascot, was named after the Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire, the birthplace of the Stoke Mandeville Games, the forerunner of today’s Paralympic Games.
Wenlock and Mandeville’s metallic look is explained by the fact that they were made from the last drops of steel used to build the Olympic Stadium in London to reflect the appearances and personalities of people they meet. The shape of Wen- lock’s forehead is identical to that of the Olympic Stadium roof. His eye is the lens of a camera, filming everything he sees. Mandeville’s eye is a camera as well and the yellow light on the mascot’s forehead is reminiscent of a London Taxi.
Say if the following statements true or false.
1. There were no Olympic mascots before 1972.
2. The first official Olympic mascot appeared in Germany.
3. In 2012 the British designers created two mascots for Winter Olympic Games.
4. Both mascots originate from the name of the same place.
5. The mascots look like glass drops.
6. The mascots have got one eye each.
