Sporting Sunday Stamps

I was spoilt for choice this week and could have easily got carried away. So I decided to start with a sport I could never attempt to play.
Sweden - Ice Hockey
I played field hockey for years but could not stand up on skates. But staying with the cold how about these?
Iceland - Wrestling and Swimming
I captained the boxing team at school have never wrestled with anything other than a problem nor was I ever much of a swimmer. I haven't tried this seriously either.
Italy - Cycling
Racquet sports I've played a lot.
Great Britain - Lawn and Table Tennis
Great Britain - Squash  
But the sport that I still play but not as well as this fellow who is two years older than me well past three score years and ten.
South Africa - Golf
I guess that now I will never have a score lower than my age. To console myself I'm off to see other sports at
Viridian's Sunday Stamps 44.

A marvelouse collection Bob, and Iceland and Italy have my votes for most favorite! The golfing nots so bad either, reminds me of Arnold Palmer! That goes way back, and the Hockey Boys they look ready for a fight!

Great Bob!

You are covering a lot of nations and I am proud you recogniced the ice hockey stamps from Sweden.

The only sport I could do is table tennis.

The tennis stamps are really great - they capture the activity!

Oh I do wish I was interested in sport, but I’m not - unless you count ‘Strictly Come Dancing’! These are all lovely, but my vote would be for the Icelandic ones for the detail.

I love the stamps from Iceland - though I would not have guessed that they were wrestling!

a great selection! I have only ever played raquet ball (somewhat like squash) when I was much younger. Now I watch competitive cooking shows ;-)
thanks for participating!

I love the graphics of the Tour of Italy one. I don't remember the GB ones but the ball lines whizzing around are great. Nice selection.

I really like the hockey stamp. It is my favorite. I was impressed with the squash on which showed the path of the ball during a match.
