More Paralympic Gold Medals on Wednesday

No primary category set

After watching Siamand Rahman of Iran bench press 280kilos today I’m feeling a bit of a weakling! These Paralympians really are superhuman, and none more so than David Weir who last night won his second gold medal in the T54 1500m wheelchair race. It was too late yesterday evening to get an image of his gold medal stamp but we have it today.

David’s second gold medal stamp will be available to buy at 500 Post Offices including Wallington Post Office in David’s home town. You’ll be able to buy them in 4700 within a week and of course David will get a second pillar box painted gold.

Sarah Storey Women’s C5 Cycling Road Time Trial

Queen of the cycling Sarah Storey won her 10th Paralympic gold today, the third at the London 2012 Games. If she carries on her present form she’ll equal Tanni Grey-Thompson’s womens record of 11 all time gold medals.

Today’s C5 Time Trial was at Brands Hatch, and Sarah left the field in little doubt of who was going to win, finishing a minute and a half up on her nearest competitor and five minutes ahead of her British team mate Crystal Lane.

Sarah’s third gold medal stamp will be on sale by Friday including in Sarah’s home town of Disley. This time Royal Mail will honour her with a gold post box which at her request will be in Eccles.

Oliver Hynd Men’s SM8 200m Individual Medley

Oliver has the full set of gold medals! After winning a bronze in the Men’s S8 100m Backstroke and a silver in the Men’s S8 400m Freestyle today Oliver added a gold in the SM8 200m medley.

There aren’t too many people wandering around with Gold, Silver and Bronze medals so having the set is something very special and in years to come possibly more valuable than any single medal.

Kirkby in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire is where you’ll be able to spot Oliver’s gold post box and also be amongst the first to buy his gold medal stamp by Friday this week.
