Olympic Mascots

There was quite a bit of controversy over the mascot for the Sochi Olympics.  Upon inspection, the designer of “Misha,” the Moscow Olympics mascot, noticed that the polar bear was almost identical to his original design.

Clearly, the two do have very similar facial features, as “Misha” designer, Viktor Chizhikov, pointed out. He said, “It’s exactly the same as mine: the eyes, the nose, the mouth, the smile…”

The Russian people voted on the three mascots (polar bear, leopard, and hare) after the Organizing Committee narrowed the options down from over 20,000 designs.
