New stamps by Austria pay tribute to Linger Brothers

Andreas and Wolfgang Linger are a well-rehearsed team not only on the luge but also away from the race track. The Linger brothers from Absam in Tyrol have been a widely known duo in the world of sports at the latest since their Olympic victory four years ago in Turin. The successful defence of their title at this year's Olympic Games in Vancouver, their second Olympic gold, made them into genuine superstars. On the occasion of the traditional Day of Sport at Vienna's Heroes Square, the friendly luge racers are now to be commemorated on a stamp of their own.
