"Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy found in effort, the educational value of a good example and of respect for universal fundamental ethical principles". (Baron Pierre de Coubertin)
The biggest sporting event on the planet is coming to Rio de Janeiro. Cyprus is once again taking part in the greatest sporting event on the planet. To mark this occasion Cyprus Post has prepared four bright stamps that StampNews.com recommends to our readers.
Four years after the Cyprus team in London and the achievement of winning our first Olympic medal in modern history, our Olympic team is preparing for the 31st Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil from 5-21 August 2016.
The goals are still high. We have confidence in the talent and in the efforts of our athletes to show that they are more than ready for the great sporting festival of the summer and to give us once again the opportunity to feel proud.
The Cyprus Post, in honouring this event, is issuing this commemorative series, consisting of four stamps depicting the sports in which Cypriot athletes are expected to participate.
