On Tuesday, the Olympic Organizing Committee unveiled three mascots that will represent Sochi and serve as the face of the 2014 Winter Olympics. The three main mascots for the Sochi Games will be a leopard, hare and a polar bear, which you can check out below:

The official mascot page says that the mascot “can be a person, an animal or a fictitious being, which reflects the cultural characteristics of the host country and symbolizes the values of the modern Olympic Movement,” so they ultimately decided to go with the three animals.

The Sochi Olympics will also include “The Snowflake” and “The Ray of Light.”
