Hello my name is jack and today I will be talking about the Sochi winter Olympic games. I will be talking about the mascots(info about them) and 3 sports  

Mascots

The Polar Bear

Beyond the arctic circle on a shelf of ice there lives a Polar Bear. In his home, everything is made out of ice and snow:  his snow shower, his bed, his computer and even his weight-lifting 
equipment. The Polar Bear was brought up by Arctic explorers from a early age.

The Hare

The Hare is the busiest  in the winter forest. Her friends are always amazed: just how find the time to do so much. For the little doe hare not only at the forest academy and helps
 her mum in the family restaurant, "The Forest Dam", but also takes part in all sporting events.

The Leopard

The Leopard is a rescuer and mountain-climber who lives in the uppermost branches of a huge tree, on the highest peak of the snowy mountains in the Caucasus. He is always 
prepared to help those in need, and on a number of occasions has rescued nearby villages.
