More Olympic Stamps

For those of you who aren't already sick of the non-event of 2012, the Royal Mail has published a new set of 10 stamps to mark the one-year countdown to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It claims the stamps are based on "vibrant illustrations by leading artists", but omits to name them. My favourite is this Athletics Field 1st Class Stamp showing a female athlete performing the famous Fosbury Flop, perfected by American Olympian Dick Fosbury in the 1968 Summer Olympics.
