I am a seven-coloured bird, and I was chosen to represent Chile in the Pan American and Parapan American Games. My name is given due to the sound of my singing and what you listen when I run past you -Fiuuuu-Follow me on Instagram Buy the official mascot here Do the Fiu's Origami Here
I face each day with passion and when I meet someone I transmit to them my positive energy with a big smile. Being small is not an obstacle to give my best effort, that is why I like to practice every sport. I admire all athletes in the Americas because they represent the excellence in Santiago 2023.
The wetlands where I was born taught me the importance to respect and value our surroundings. I am perseverant in the search on how to make the planet a sustainable place, to leave a small mark that makes a difference.
I know I have a big job representing the Pan American and Parapan American Games, which implies a responsibility and important challenges. I am determined in taking my role as a welcoming party to the host city, and to make Chileans and foreigners feel a part of the Games, always enjoying each one of the milestones I will live on the road to Santiago 2023.
My colour variety represents the diversity of humans and species. All races, languages, beliefs and people of the countries we will welcome in Santiago 2023. That is why I want to invite each one of the participants of these Games: athletes, federations, judges, volunteers and everyone to share their differences.
The Santiago 2023 Official Mascot is getting ready to compete and enjoy with athletes from all the Americas. This is the reason it trains day by day to be a part of the Pan American and Parapan American Games.
Since Fiu is always moving, it knows it needs to take a break to drink water and recover energy to represent our country In the Games.
By representing the Pan American and Parapan American Games, Fiu wants to know and practice each one of the 38 Pan American and the 17 Parapan American sports in Santiago 2023.
