This handsome chap is Guaky, the mascot for the Copa America, which got underway last night in Venezuela. We are not sure he is quite up to the standard of Goleo from last summer’s World Cup, but the passionate parrot is a decent mascot nonetheless. See the pick of previous Copa America mascots by clicking below.
Chasqui – the happy-go-lucky Amerindian from Peru 2004.
Ameriko – this bizarre mascot for Colombia 2001 looks like he was dreamt up by a designer on Colombian marching powder.
Tatu – if you though Tatu was a Russian lesbian pop duo, you’d be right but it was also the armadillo representative of Bolivia 1997.
