paralympic games – 2 / パラリンピック- 2

June 26, 2012

22 July 2010, United Kingdom
‘Olympic and Paralympic Games 2012‘
Paralympic Games: Table Tennis
design: Michael Craig-Martin

Another set of stamps on Olympic games was issued in 2010. My favourite designs are about the Paralympic games, again.  The stamp below is showing the ringing bell of Goalball – which is a team sport designed for blind athletes.

Paralympic Games: Goalball
design: Tobratron

このオリンピック・セットは2010年に発行されました。いいな、と思ったのはまたしてもパラリンピック競技の卓球とゴール・ボールという競技を描いた2枚。ゴール・ボールは第二次世界大戦後の負傷兵のリハビリのために考案された、盲目の人たちの球技でした。
