      2002 TOUR:
      Tserenjanhor (pronounced Sar-in-jong-car) is the first-ever player
      from Mongolia to sign a contract to play professional basketball in
      the United States. Tserenjanhor, who speaks fluent English, is the
      first player from his country to join the world famous Harlem
      Globetrotters. He spent the summer working out with other current and
      former professional players in Houston, including Moses Malone.

      GLOBETROTTERS:
      The 27-year-old "Shark" came to the Globetrotters by recommendation
      of former Louisiana State Head Coach Dale Brown. "Shark," who is
      currently a law student at Otgontenger University in Mongolia, is the
      star of the Mongolian National Team and tallied 32 points and grabbed
      11 rebounds against the gold-medal winning Australian National Team
      this summer at the 2001 East Asian Games in Japan. He played
      professional basketball for the Skyhawks of the Mongolian Basketball
      Association for four seasons (1996-2001) before signing with the
      Globetrotters. Shark joins other outstanding players born outside the
      United States to play for the Globetrotters, including Orlando
      Antigua (1995-present, Dominican Republic), Wendyl Daniel (1997-98,
      Trinidad, West Indies), Pascal Fleury (Montreal, Canada), Osborne
      Lockhart (1977-93, Nassau, Bahamas), Dut Mayar (1997-98, Sudan, North
      Africa), and Kendal Pinder (1980-83, Nassau, Bahamas).

      PERSONAL:
      Shark first began playing basketball at age 17. He is the tallest man
      in his home country and has been labeled the "Michael Jordan" of
      Mongolia. His Dad is 6-5, while his mother is 6-2. Shark has one
      older brother who is 6-10 and two sisters that are both 6-2.
      Following high school, Shark studied Russian and English at the
      Foreign Language Institute in Erdenet, Mongolia. Shark enjoys fishing
      in his spare time. He is married to Erdenebulgan and they have a two-
      year-old son.

      IF YOU COULD GO OUT TO DINNER WITH ONE PERSON, WHO WOULD IT BE?:
      "It would be fascinating to have dinner with Genghis Khan. He was
      able to weld rival tribes into a nation back in the 12th and 13th
      centuries and it would be interesting to hear how he accomplished
      that feat. Many people in Mongolia still cherish his legendary
      leadership."
