News: Kneale To Feature On Stamps

British Shooting athlete Tim Kneale will feature on a new set of Olympic stamps commissioned by the Isle of Man Post Office.

Kneale produced a great performance in Rio to finish fourth in the double trap event and was narrowly pipped to the bronze medal by fellow Team GB shooter Steve Scott.

Fellow Manx athlete Mark Cavendish also features on the series of stamps after he won silver in the omnium.

“I am a bit blown away at the fact I’m on this in the Isle of Man, something I never thought I’d see,” Kneale said.

“It’s great to get the recognition for the Isle of Man as well as at the same time wave the Manx flag at the biggest sporting event in the world.”

Maxine Cannon, Isle of Man Stamps and Coins General Manager said: “We along with the rest of the island were proud of Mark Cavendish and Tim Kneale’s achievements and of course the rest of the Team GB athletes.

“We were delighted to have produced the stamps in recognition of our participation in this truly wonderful sporting event.”
