MOSCOW -- Sochi's mascots for the 2014 Winter Olympics are a rad snowboarding snow leopard, a squeaky-voiced figure skating bunny and an earnest, slightly dorky polar bear.

The unusual decision to have three mascots was announced by Sochi organizing committee head Dmitry Chernyshenko on Saturday at the end of a nationally televised gala to choose them.

How they compare with Vancouver's:

Oh, so Sochi is a city. I kept hearing people radioing about Sochi house while working the Olympics last year.

I wondered why they all had Japanese names and looked like Japanimation.

'Quatchi' is slang for a sensation that a woman has between her legs when she gets turned on.

Life expectancy for Russian males is under 60 yo-simply because alcoholism is endemic.

Yeah, I hear that's part of the reason why they're turning into an Muslim nation, cuz the Muslims there don't drink and the Russians do. So the Muslims live a lot longer.

ours were designed by the Chinese and boy do they look like it..pretty bad! So childish.Something right out an Asian comic book.So sad when Canada is considered one of the best designer nations in the world we turn to Chinese designs.So many good design teams here in Canada and we picked amateurish crap. I wonder how she was selected..a family member of the board no doubt, not by talent [hahaha wot talent] itself..its who you know I guess...we failed to wow the world in our greatest moment, big time. Typically Canadian I guess..we allowed mediocrity and favor to usurp our good judgement.

Russias mascots are okay, at least the look like acutal animals. I still have no idea what the fuck our mascots are..I think one is a sasquach...or something. No clue what the black and white one is..looks like a starving retard panda and the one with the hat..a 3 horned owl bear fuck. No clue.


Stereotype is just another word for statistic.

The former USSR had a mascot in 1980, not unlike the ones it created for Sochi in 2012:

When Vancouver's official logo came out, it also came under fire as well. The first logo, they produced for its bid was considered better than it's final product. Maybe they didn't use it because the original designer asked for too much money or didn't want to relinquish the rights to it:

...so we gotta logo on a budget that a 4 year old could make up. :D
