To commemorate the end of the Olympics, the Royal Mail
released their collection of stamps that feature this year's gold medalists of the GB team
. The 29 gold medals earned by the British team were won in cycling, rowing, canoeing, shooting, sailing, tennis, taekwondo, athletics, triathlon, equestrian and boxing- a quite impressive performance for the hosts. The stamps feature a picture of each athlete with golden applications to glorify their triumph. Just like the stamps released to celebrate the beginning of the Games
, this edition is a nice souvenir to honor the champions the classical, old school way.
