spectators / 観客の存在

February 21, 2012

31 March 1962, German Democratic Republic
Cycling World Championship

It was interesting watching the Track Cycling World Cup highlights on TV this past weekend. Several athletes mentioned that they were supported by the spectator’s cheers a lot, especially when they were almost burnt out towards their goal.  It seems that cheers make a difference to achieve good competition and new records.

This stamp is showing a lot of spectators in a velodrome – although their faces are a bit expressionless…   I featured another stamp, which is showing spectators alongside the road to support Tour de France racers – in this case, they are more animated with their arms raised.
