Issue Information

The city of Rio de Janeiro has been elected host city of the XXXI Olympic Summer Games in 2016. They are scheduled to be held from 5th to 21st August 2016, making these the second Summer Olympics to be held during the host city's winter (the first was the Sydney 2000 Olympics).

Team GB's inspiring performance during London 2012 captured the imagination of a nation and we saw a genuine outpouring of support and pride which lifted the mood of the country. With the Rio 2016 Games upon us, we want to retain the powerful physical and emotional connection that we have seen between fans and our athletes. The sheer volume of support will not be there in person but it can be there in spirit!

Manx atheletes from a number of disciplines have made huge contributions to Team GB over the years, from Manx-born rower Sidney Swann, who was the first was the first competitor from the Isle of Man to win an Olympic medal in 1912 to Team Sky pro rider Peter Kennaugh MBE, who struck gold a century later as part of the team pursuit track cycling squad which smashed the Olympic and world records in the final.

Looking ahead to Rio 2016, cycling is once again likely to see a number of Isle of Man competitors representing Team GB with Cavendish, Kennaugh and Team Sky rider Ben Swift all in the running for selection (Swift moved home from Yorkshire to the Isle of Man in 2010). One Manxman already selected for Rio is world record breaking shooter and double
Commonwealth Games medalist Tim Kneale, who will be making his Olympic debut.

This collection features a Mint and CTO set, Presentation Pack, First Day Cover and as a Mint and CTO Sheetlet.
