Athletes to head for Torino Olympics PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 03 February 2006
The Chief of State Committee of Physical Culture and Sports, Mr. Ch.Naranbaatar has met the skiers to take part in 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy and wished them to make a new national record for Mongolia. From Mongolia Kh.Khash-Erdene (male) and E.Ochirsuren (female) and a their trainer L.Dorj, the Secretary General of Mongolian Association of Skiers are to participate in this "Torino-2006" Winter Olympic Games. The athletes will head Torino on Saturday February 4, 2006

Mongolia made its Olympic Winter Games debut in 1964 in Innsbruck, but has until today never won a medal. At this first Olympic Games in Innsbruck, a group of Mongolian cross-country skiers unexpectedly showed up at the competition, unaware of any application procedure, but were nevertheless allowed to compete.

Mongolian athletes have participated in 9 editions of the Summer Olympic Games and have won 14 medals, including 5 silver and 9 bronze medals. In general, Mongolia , a country with a rather small population, has gained 743 gold, 770 silver and 1025 bronze medals in many international competitions, 70 percent of which are gained by wrestlers.

Mongolia Websites

Akira KAMIMURA, lecturer, faculty of Mongolian studies, Tokyo University of Foreign Studies launched an innovative website on old Mongolian manuscripts maps in cooperation with the state archive of Mongolia. It contains 16 precious maps which are stored at the state archive for academic use. The oldest map was estimated being made in 1803-1805.

A remarkable feature of this web site is that you can find manuscripts written on those maps by an advanced search function. All content of the maps has been indexed and easily accessible with the advanced search function.

For instance, if you type, "erdeni"(transcription of Mongol bichig as "erdene"), you get 24 search results and it says "erdeni" is written on 4 different maps. Then, it indicates where the search words are found on the specific places of the maps. Also, you can add search conditions among 20 items.

KAMIMURA hopes this web site helps progress on study of Mongolian history and many other related disciplines. Not only for the academic use, it is also beautiful and interesting to appreciate.
