Mt Olympus to the second phase of the New 7 Wonders of Nature campaign
Posted: January 14, 2009 at 08:42 AM EST (13:42 PM GMT)

Mt Olympus, the mountain of the 12 Gods of ancient Greek mythology, is the only Greek "monument of nature" that made it to the second phase of the New7Wonders of Nature online campaign, being among the 261 national and multinational nominations that qualified and are now competing for a place among the top 77.

The Greek nominees included the Meteora Rock Mountains, the island of Santorini and the Petrified Forest on the island of Lesvos.

In the first phase of the campaign roughly 100 million people voted worldwide.

Larissa Prefecture, in central Greece, on the occasion of the second vote that will last until July 7, 2009 called on all the people of Larissa and its expatriates to mobilize and support the Mt Olympus nomination.

The top-voted nominees will be considered by the New 7 Wonders Panel of Experts. A shortlist of 21 selected candidates will be announced in July 2009 and will go forward to the next stage of voting. Voting for the New 7 Wonders of Nature as chosen by popular vote from the 21 finalist candidates will continue throughout 2010 and into 2011 when the official New 7 Wonders of Nature will be declared.

I can't understand how Meteora didn't make it? It should be both a natural and architectural (because of the monasteries) wonder; however its place is taken by the.....the statue of Christ in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

Also, I can't understand how the Vikos Gorge is not there.
