After winning Australia’s first individual gold medal of the London 2012 Olympic Games, sailing superstar and five time world champion, Tom Slingsby, will become Australia’s first individual gold medallist to feature on a 2012 Australian Gold Medallist Stamp.
Stamps featuring an image of Slingsby from the gold medal dais in London will be available in participating Australia Post retail outlets from Thursday, 9 August while stocks last.
Australia Post is producing stamps for every Australian gold medallist from the London 2012 Olympic Games, and they are expected to be available in metropolitan Australia Post outlets within 48 hours of each gold medal presentation.
“Our first Gold Medallist stamp for the 2012 London Olympics featured the women’s 4 x 100 freestyle team, and the positive response was fantastic. We are hoping that fans are just as excited to see Tom on our first individual stamp,” said Australia Post Managing Director and CEO, Ahmed Fahour.
