Val stamps her mark
Silver medal winner Valerie Adams is featured on a brand new stamp which celebrates her success at the Rio Games.
“New Zealand Post congratulates Valerie Adams on her stunning performance in Rio and her silver medal in the women’s
shot put - her third Olympic medal,“ says Head of Stamps and Coins, Simon Allison.
“Featuring Valerie on a stamp is all the more special to us because she is a New Zealand Post ambassador and has
represented us at so many junior sport and community events. We are very proud of her achievement in Rio,” says Simon
“Our athletes are inspirational and like the rest of New Zealand, we will continue to follow their progress in Rio,”
says Simon Allison.
Every time New Zealand wins a medal at the Games, a special sheet of six stamps will be printed showing images of the
medal winners. The stamps are available to order online at nzpost.co.nz/roadtorio
and a range of Olympic medallist stamps will be available for purchase in selected PostShops.
