Qinghai Province party Chief Qiang Wei passed the torch to the first torchbearer Cega, a Tibetan man known as "Tibetan Antelope Guard" who spent more than ten years on anti-poaching in the nearby Hol Xil Nature Reserve. "As the first torchbearer, I'm very proud and excited," said Cega. "Wish the Beijing Olympics as a perfect game." The torch was then passed to a local private entrepreneur Liu Shengchun, whose company donated Kunlun Jade worth 36 million yuan to the Beijing Olympic organizers for making the Olympic medal. A total of 171 torchbearers will run 7.5 kilometers in the city, which is famous for rising industry.
