Matthew Mitcham gets his own stamp

The only gay man to participate in this year’s Beijing Olympics, Matthew Mitcham, took home the gold in the 10 meter platform in a surprising upset. And now, this accomplishment will plaster his li’l gay mug all over Australian mail.

Australia has immortalised its gold medallists at the 2008 Beijing Olympics on a series of special commemorative stamps.

As in previous Olympic Games, Australia Post produced a sheetlet of 50 cent Gold Medallist stamps to celebrate each gold medal won by an Australian athlete or team within 24 hours of the presentation ceremony.

Is this, perhaps, a reason to stop typing and send a letter or two by actual post again? It will certainly make licking the stamp more fun…
