Netherlands 2006 Skating legends Ard Schenk and Yvonne van Gennip ‘Going for Gold’ Lenticular Motion Stamps   

Issue date  10 February 2006 

TPG Post and Atos Origin are honouring the top sport by immortalising two special athletes on the postage stamp 'Going for gold'. It has unique moving images of Dutch skating legends Ard Schenk and Yvonne van Gennip. These special postage stamps have been produced by TPG Post in collaboration with Atos Origin, Worldwide IT Partner for the Olympic Games through to the 2012 London Olympic Games.     

To honour both these two greatest Dutch skating legends and to mark the Torino 2006 Olympic Winter Games, TPG Post and Atos Origin have taken the opportunity to issue a special postage stamp, a stamp on which both skaters are seen in action through the use of an innovative ‘lenticular’ technique. There is a sequence of twelve film stills taken from the winning races at Sapporo and Calgary, to portray Ard and Yvonne skating in full flight over four square centimetres. The snowy images of Ard in 1972 and those of Yvonne come from the early years of colour TV, presenting the designers with a major challenge.

All other Dutch gold-medal winners at Winter Olympic Games are also honoured on the stamp by displaying their names below the two stamps.
