Mascot To Be Unveiled

The mascot for the 2008 Beijing Olympics will be unveiled on November 11.

It is widely expected to be either a Tibetan antelope or a giant panda.

The unveiling date marks the 1,000-day countdown to the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games, which will start at 8 pm on August 8, 2008.

An audience of at least 4,000 people, including International Olympic Committee officials, will attend the unveiling.

Seemingly there were 662 eligible mascot designs submitted for consideration.
