  • [01] ATHOC to present 2004 Olympiad's mascot on Thursday

    01/04/2002 21:28:08

    The Athens 2004 Organising Committee (ATHOC) will present the 2004 Athens Olympic Games mascot to the press and International Olympic Committee (IOC) members, and possibly IOC President Jacques Rogge, at the Zappeion Hall on Thursday.

    In most Olympiads, the mascot is a symbol following the tournaments before and after the Games and is a figment of imagination which, however, ''personifies'' Olympic values and gives them a figure which is simple and accessible to both children and adults.

    In addition, the Olympic Games mascot, particularly in past years, is a lucrative product for countries hosting the most important sports event on the planet.

    The mascot was selected from among 196 proposals sent to ATHOC from all over the world and through the processes of a tender starting on February 26 last year and reaching the end of last year.

    [02] Retail gasoline prices jump on Mideast crisis

    01/04/2002 19:39:37

    Retail liquid fuel prices in Greece rose sharply in March, fuelled by a mounting political crisis in the Middle East, with fresh hikes seen ahead, industry officials said on Monday.

    Under indicative retail prices released weekly by the ministry last month, super petrol sold at 0.719 euros a litre and leadless at around 0.61 euros, both up about 0.6 euros, the officials said.

    They attributed the rise mainly to an increase in world oil prices stemming from the crisis, with the hike expected to accelerate if the violence continues.
