Post Office recognises Olympic selection

Manx cycling star Jonny Bellis has been given a framed set of Beijing Olympic stamps by Isle of Man Post.

The presentation was made by Post Office Chairman Alan Crowe, MLC, in recognition of Jonny's selection for Great Britain in the games next month.

The 19 year-old will be competing in the Men’s Road Race, while fellow Manxman Mark Cavendish will be hoping to add to his World Madison title and amazing Tour de France by taking the Olympic Madison title as well.

Jonny participated in a number of sports from the age of six, but decided he was best suited to cycling when he was 15.

Mr Crowe said: 'The Olympics is the greatest sporting spectacle in the world and for the Isle of Man to have both Jonny and Mark in the British cycling team is truly remarkable. We are all very proud.'
