Olympics - Sunday Stamps II

We rented our first television to watch the 1960 Olympics in Rome where Cassius Clay won his gold medal. We little thought then that he would become so great.

The stamps I have to show from those Games are these in a old (1963) album I was given - 

Russia - XVII Olympics
Can you identify the sports depicted?

Interesting stamps. We did the same when we first came to Canada, rented a TV to see the Olympics from Montreal.

I like how these could also work well as posters.

Hi Bob - what a great set of stamps ... such fun to see. I think I can distinguish most of the sports ... we must have got our first tv then too - but I was away at school during term time ...

Cheers Hilary
