The 2014 Olympic Winter Games are now open in Sochi, Russia!  The slogan for the games is Hot. Cool. Yours. 

The Sochi Mascots are The Polar Bear, The Hare and The Leopard.  The Mascots even have their own Facebook page.  The public got the chance to vote for their favorite mascots in 2011.  The look of the mascots have changed since that time.
