Georgia to Name Mountain for Arnold Schwarzenegger - 2003-10-12

First a body-builder turned actor, then governor-elect of California, now Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to have his own mountain.

In Tbilisi on Sunday, Georgian officials said they plan to name one of the Caucus mountains after the Austrian-American.

A presidential spokesman, Temur Shashiashvili, said the decision to rename a mountain in Mr. Schwarzenegger's honor was taken two years ago, but the actor couldn't attend the planned ceremony.

He said he is going to send a note of congratulations to the governor-elect, and ask him to pay a visit to "his" very own mountain.
