Olympics Gold Medal Winners (2012)

The victories of Helen Glover and Heather Stanning in the Women’s Pairs Rowing, and Bradley Wiggins in the Cycling: Road Men’s Time Trial not only earned Great Britain’s first gold medals at the London 2012 Olympic Games, but saw them appear on special stamps which were rushed out by Royal Mail the day after. Twenty nine stamps were produced in all. Additionally Glover and Stanning became the first all-female sports team to appear on a Royal Mail stamp.
