Cega: "Daddy of Chiru." [Xinhua]
"The media calls me the 'Guard of Tibetan Antelopes', but personally I prefer what my friends and associates call me: Tibetan Antelopes' Daddy," says Cega, who yesterday became the first Olympic torchbearer in Qinghai province. The 56-year-old military officer has been fighting poachers to protect the chirus in Hol Xil Nature Reserve for the past decade.
