The war is over...the world is recovering...England is back on its feet...LET THE GAMES BEGIN! For the first time since the outbreak of World War II, the Olympics were back, and London's Wembley Stadium was the site of the Opening Ceremonies for the Games of the XIV Olympiad. This incredible poster features a rare archival image from that historic day in sporting history - July 29, 1948 - as British runner John Mark arrives through the stadium gates with the Olympic Torch. High above stands a legendary quote from the founder of the modern Olympic movement, Baron de Coubertin: "The important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part. The essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well." As both a historic reminder of the 1948 London games, and as an inspirational piece for any athlete, this poster is perfect for the wall of your clubhouse, locker room, home or office. The yellow flame contrasting with the rest of the black-and-white scene is spectacular, signifying a rebirth of sport, and the magic of the Olympic Games. A true sporting gem!
