Description:
20c x 4, Winter Olympic Games, Sarajevo 1984.

This set of four stamps was issued in honor of the athletes competing in the 1984 Winter Olympic Games. Designed by Robert Peak of Scottsdale, Arizona, the stamps showcase four of the most popular sports in the winter games.

The 1984 Winter Olympics were held in Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which was part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia at the time. It was the first Winter Games – and the second Olympics – held in a Communist state. Bill Johnson took the gold in alpine skiing to become the first America to win an Olympic downhill event.
