Russia: Is this Sochi's answer to Paul the Octopus?

Four years after being rescued in the Russian Far East, Busya the seal is enjoying life at the Dolphinarium in Sochi. Staff hope Busya might be able to predict the winners of Winter Olympic events in a manner similar to how Paul the Octopus was able to correctly guess the winners of the 2010 World Cup.

Staff in Sochi hope Busya has a similar success rate to Paul who correctly predicted 11 out of 13 football results. Busya has already proved his psychic credentials by prediction several football matches, with staff saying he has a "99 percent" success rate.
