Is this pelican more of a Scully or a Skylar?

That’s for the community to decide. The official mascot for the 2017 World Rowing Championships is one step closer to getting a name after event staff announced the top five candidates submitted online.

Those names are:

  • Oarson
  • Paddles
  • Rowan
  • Scully
  • Skylar

You can vote for your favorite online through Jan. 15. The winning name will be announced Jan. 18.

The World Rowing Championships will be held at Nathan Benderson Park from Sept. 23 to Oct. 1.
