Russians propose talisman for Sochi 2014

Moscow, July 11, Interfax - After Sochi was chosen to host the Winter Olympic Games 2014, many Russians started proposing talisman for that.

Its something mad with that. There so many suggestions. People call us every moment, the Russian Olympic Committee press secretary Gennady Shvets told Interfax on Wednesday.

Among the proposed emblems there are a bear (resembling that of the Moscow Olympiad 1980), a polar bear, a three bears, a skiing dolphin and many other things.

Of course well consider all ideas, but its too early to be chose the talisman now. It will be discussed and approved in its time with proper consideration given to the International Olympic Committee norms, Shvets added.
