The stamps were issued on occasion of the "Liberation Day Sports Meeting, Pyongyang". The stadium on the stamp looks a little bit like the Girimri Stadium (Kim Il-sung Stadium). Tomonakaazu do you have more information (stadium / velodrome)?

Hi bicyclestamps - I bought those two stamps together and believed that the second one is a velodrome, but it actually looks like a stadium... you must be right about it and nothing to do with cycling in that case!

Very cute print on the airmail envelope, bicyclestamps. Funny to see a volleyball is above velodrome... Dutch words "1st Day of issue" is read, and it seems that ex-Dutch territory in South America and Caribbean are keen on bicycle and cycling.

"South America" and "girl on bicycle" connection.
It looks like featuring Tokyo Olympic 1964, but there were no women track racing until 1988... shoes don't look for bicycle racing, anyway.

Competition on a stamp. With their swift pedalling, they are making little cloud behind their colourful wheels!
