Olympic and Paralympic Games 2012

In busy London, Wimbledon has started today.  Then it’s 31 days to Olympic games and 64 days to Paralympic games…  My studio is located on the edge of the ‘Olympics event zone’, and the area is dedicated for authorised staff car parks.  It is easy to imagine that total chaos is coming soon!

Three related sets of stamps were issued for the Olympic games since 2009 – less than half of them I like.  Then I realise that the ones I like are mostly for the Paralympics.  So, I started to look up the details of sports in those games.  In the Equestrian events, people who started this sport for rehabilitation from Cerebral palsy will exhibit their developed skills, for example.

Not just for top elites of pro sports or mere nationalism, it will be very interesting to watch the results for people with a different type of motivation.
