Nearly a century ago a young Victor E. Viking sailed away from his homeland in Scandinavia on an epic journey around the globe. One day he came upon Bellingham Bay and decided to dock his ship and explore the area. He entered the town of Bellingham and then made his way up Sehome Hill where he found himself on the campus of Bellingham State Normal School (now Western Washington University). He loved the area and the university so much that he decided he would make it his home and become Western's No. 1 fan! Ever since that day in 1923, Victor E. Viking has become not only the No.1 supporter of Western Athletics, but also its mascot! It has been said that when Victor first came to Western he was so good at all sports that every coach wanted him on their team. Since he couldn't make up his mind on which team to be a part of he decided to root for them all as Western's mascot. Nowadays you can find Victor cheering on all of Western's amazing athletic teams from basketball to softball, showing off his Western pride.
