KYRGYZ REPUBLIC GOES FOR GOLD

WIPO has just informed the IPKat today that the Kyrgyz Republic has notified it of its intention to be bound by the Nairobi Treaty on the Protection of the Olympic Symbol with effect from 18 November 2004. As of a fortnight ago, 43 states were signatory to this treaty. Kyrgyzstan has only ever won one medal at the Olympics; this was in Sydney 2000 when Aidyn Smagulov picked up a bronze medeal (and a good deal more) in one of the weight-lifting competitions.
