Peter Kenanugh, along with team mates Steven Burke, Edward Clancy and Geraint Thomas  won the gold medal in a dramatic race in which they set a new world record time of  03:51.659. Team GB were tipped as the favorites and confirmed this position in qualifying.

The Gold Medal Winners Sheet features the cycling stamps of Isle of Man Post Office’s London 2012 Olympic Games stamp issue, designed by world-renowned fashion designer Sir Paul Smith, along with images of Peter and his team mates taking part in the race.

Less than 24 hours after he rode to victory in the team pursuit, Peter arrived back on the Isle of Man to a hero’s welcome.  A huge crowd cheered as he walked through the arrivals area of the Isle of Man Airport holding his gold medal. Peter also joined in with an impromptu rendition of the Island’s national anthem followed by an emotional speech in which he expressed his thanks for the reception. He held his gold medal aloft which prompted an enormous cheer from the crowd that included fans of all ages. He spent an hour signing autographs and having his photograph taken and passed his gold medal to fans – much to the delight of the many children who turned up to meet their hero.

Steven Taylor then contacted the Isle of Man Archery Club and asked if they had anyone between ages 16 and 18 who would be able to go to London and Peter and Joy at the archery club asked me if I wanted to do it and I said I could so they put my name down and I was chosen to take part in the Olympics.

IOM Stamps: What was the experience like?

Adam Wright: The experience was very good to see all of the world class archers and the sort of equipment they used and a stadium full of people all very excited about watching the shooting.

Adam Wright: It was exciting to be part of such a massive event and it was an experience that I will never forget as I was very proud to take part.

IOM Stamps: What did you enjoy most?
