Sunday Stamps #80

Goodness we are up to week #80! Not too soon to be thinking about week # 100....

Our theme this week:  stamps for the Olympics (this year or previous years), or featuring a sporting activity. The Games are almost upon us!  Olympic stamps, showing the 5 rings, are harder to find that I initially thought, so please feel free to share a sports stamp.  I was saved by a recent card from a Russian Postcrosser.


I cannot read the Cyrillic characters, but I'll guess that this stamp commemorates 100 years of the Russian Olympic Committee.  I could be wrong I guess.  It does show the 5 rings of the Olympics.

Join me this Sunday in some sporting activity - or at least anticipating the opening ceremonies.  I hear London will be busier and more crowded than usual.  If that is possible.

Edited to add: theme for next week: Anything you wish.

You're right, the stamp commemorates 100 years of the Russian Olympic Committee.

good guess - though that 2011 is a bit confusing, not being an Olympic year.

do we have a theme for next week?

London is somewhere to be avoided this summer, as far as I'm concerned. Mind you I was there the day after the Royal Wedding last year and was surprised it was reasonably quiet. Nevertheless I won't be risking it again.

I like that the flag is looking like the Olympic flame :)

I have several Olympic-related stamps but chose this "futuristic" stamp which was sent very recently by a Postcrosser from Russia.

Great theme, once again. There are so many Olympic stamps out there, just choosing was the hard part!

Its an all action stamp, I like the number of sports they have managed to portrayed on a small space.

The 2011 date confused me too. I had to go shopping again as I had used all my Olympic stamps before.
