ROLLING INTO THE ’88 OLYMPICS
Date: September 1988
The tiger mascot of the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul, South Korea, got in on the bowling trend, as the sport appeared on the Olympic stage for the first time that year. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) chose bowling as an exhibition sport in early 1986, leaving plenty of time to create bowling-themed souvenirs!
