Many teams have some type of mascot, like a stuffed animal that they bring to competitions.
Did you know that Top Gun OO5 had a mascot? And that it was…a pineapple?
What makes this even greater is that it, or she, had a name – Helen!
Who was Helen?
What the name Helen was supposed to mean is something that only the team knows. We did however look into it a little and found that pineapples can mean good luck.
She got her own OO5 bow, a Twitter account and followed the team around at Worlds 2018 – she was even on the stage when they won!
Helen – a legend.
A new life
After Worlds 2018, Helen sadly passed away (#RIPHelen) but the top was cut off and planted.
She later rose from the dead and was back for the 2018-2019 as a mascot for Top Gun Angels!
