Although the Winter Olympics are due in Sochi next month I find that almost all of my Olympic stamps deal with summer games so I am going to cheat a bit. I'll start with the man who 'started' the modern games.
For winter sports I have chosen two stamps from Norway neither of which are 'Olympic' stamps.
|Norway - Skiing World Championship 1997|
|Norway - Holmenkollen 1979|
Why have I chosen Norwegian stamps?
Norway is the only country to have held the Winter Paralympics twice. Once at Geilo in 1980 and once at Lillehammer in 1994.
The 2014 Winter Paralympics are due at Sochi in March.
And I just happen to have a 1994 stamp from the Paralympics.
|Norway - Paralympics 1994|
