Olympic organizers are looking for women to present flowers and medals to athletes in Sochi. Not everyone is eligible.

Women must be between the ages of 17 and 35 and at least 5 feet, 5 inches tall, according to R-Sport.

“It’s a unique opportunity to genuinely be in the very center of the Games and see all the finals and all the winners with your own eyes,” said Kristina Lichman, a casting coordination official, according to the report.

About 113 women will be needed. The chosen ones will begin training “in makeup and hair styling” on Jan. 25, Lichman said.

The Sochi Olympic Opening Ceremony is Feb. 7.
