The Olympics


News, information and stories about the Olympic Games.

Friday, 3 September 2004


Even though the Olympics 2008 in Beijing are still four years away, people are setting their minds to what should be the symbol for those Games.

I understand that three students, from Ningbo University, have started a campaign for the Tibetan antelope to be the mascot for the 2008 Olympics.

They have started a bicycle journey, with a banner proclaiming their support for the symbol; and are collecting signatures in support of their cause.

I understand that they have covered over 3500KM.

The antelope is on the endangered species list, and there is a campaign to protect it.

To read more about the antelope, and to see a very cute picture of one, visit Tibetan Antelope.
