The Leopard, the Polar Bear and the Hare are announced to be the official mascots of Sochi 2014 Olympics. The Leopard has won 28 % of votes at the official voting, the Polar Bear has got 18 % and the Hare –16%. The mascots of Sochi Paralympics are the Ray of Light and the Snowflake. The mascots were chosen as the results of a public vote during the live television show "Talismaniya Sochi 2014 - The Final” on Channel One. The Russians were voting by sending a text message to the number “2014” or calling a free phone number for each mascot candidate. The final results of the vote were announced at 11.20 pm on 26 February. Dmitry Chernyshenko, President and CEO of the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee, explained the choice of the three mascots: “Each of the talismans confirms the Olympics principals—friendship, respect and a commitment to excellence”.
