There is competition on creation of XXII Olympic and XI Paralvmpic winter Games talisman. «There was made unprecedented decision — to create a talisman with the help of all country, — the president of Organizing committee «Sochi-2014» Dmitry Chernyshenko informed. — Never before it was chosen by public voting».

The talisman «will become a symbol of the Games. It should reflect national and cultural features of Russia, correspond to a spirit of the age, cause positive emotions». Within three months any interested person can send the application to competition portal talisman.sochi2014. ru or by post. The winner will be defined by telephone and SMS voting on February, 7th, 2011, three years prior to Olympic Games opening. The results will be announced on the air.

Winners will get certificates for two tickets for opening of XXII Olympic or XI Paralympic winter games — depending on leadership in nominations «Olympic talisman» or «Paralympic talisman». Thirty years ago the whole world chose «personage» for XXIX summer Olympic Games which took place in 1980 in Moscow. The «nominees» were a bison, an eagle, a bee, a horse, a dog and even a cock. However, the victory was gained by a bear — 80% of spectators voted for it.
