31st Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil 11.4.2016

"Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy found in effort, the educational value of a good example and of respect for universal fundamental ethical principles." (Baron Pierre de Coubertin)Cyprus is once again taking part in the greatest sporting event on the planet.
Four years after the Cyprus team in London and the achievement of winning our first Olympic medal in modern history, our Olympic team is preparing for the 31st Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil from 5-21 August 2016.
The goals are still high. We have confidence in the talent and and in the efforts of our athletes to show that they are more than ready for the great sporting festival of the summer and to give us once again the opportunity to feel proud.
We all support the Olympic team in Rio, to give Cyprus a boost.
The Cyprus Post, in honouring this event, is issuing this commemorative series, consisting of four stamps depicting the sports in which Cypriot athletes are expected to participate.

Thank you Merja.
