Sochi Mascots on the Move

An exhibition with the Sochi 2014 Olympic mascots - Polar Bear, Hare and Leopard - has been installed in Manezhnaya Square in Moscow. The mascots arrived in Moscow from London, where they had graced the centre of the British capital in Hyde Park on Marble Arch throughout the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. The Sochi 2014 mascots will remain in Moscow until next January, and then in February 2014 they will move to the Olympic Park in Sochi.

The appearance of the three Olympic mascots on Manezhnaya Square is likely to attract attention as the installation is approximately 10 meters long and 4 meters high. The bright Sochi 2014 mascots will provide a pleasant surprise for Muscovites and visitors alike. The Sochi 2014 mascots were selected through a live national vote in the Russian National mascot competition on Channel One Russia in 2010.
