Britain’s First Gold Medals commemorated on stamps
Britain has won Olympic gold in the men’s team sprint cycling as Chris Hoy, Philip Hindes, Jason Kenny blew away the London 2012 velodrome in their race against France. And Peter Robert Russell Wilson has won a Gold Medal for Team GB in the Men’s Double Trap Shooting and Tim Baillie and Etienne Stott follow this up with Gold in Men’s Canoe Double. Royal Mail will issue next day stamps to commemorate these wins. The stamps will be available to buy in more than 500 Post Office branches by Mid-day tomorrow and are available to buy online now.
This follows Bradley Wiggins, Helen Glover & Heather Stanning’s Gold Medal Wins for Team GB yesterday.
