Hot Entertainment: Meet Miga

Olympic mascot Miga is inspired by the First Nations legend of the sea bear, which is a hybrid of an orca (killer whale) and a bear. She’s a cutie who pursues an active lifestyle. In summer, Miga surfs off the west coast of Vancouver Island; in winter, she snowboards with a dream of one day landing a corked 720 in the halfpipe. This energetic creature gets her fuel from wild salmon, her favourite food—she’s partial to sushi, smoked salmon and salmon jerky.—Kristina Urquhart
