Isle of Man Post Office is first to celebrate Team GB

Tue, 31 May 2016


The Isle of Man Post Office is the first to launch a set of Team GB stamps in celebration of the 2016 Olympics. 
 
A record number of countries will be participating with more than 10,000 people directly involved - including 70,000 volunteers and 10,500 athletes from the 206 countries.
 
The Post Office says it wanted to build off the enthusiasm seen at the London 2012 Olympics and decided to design the stamps in support of Team GB and Manx athletes.
 
The stamps have the Team GB logo on as well as pictures of various sports like gymnastics and swimming as well as one with Peter Kennaugh in the pursuit track cycling.
 
Coins and stamps manager Maxine Cannon says the Olympic Association is pleased the Island is getting into the spirit:
