Olympic History on Display During London Games
For those not able to make it to London, here's a great video of the OLYMPEX 2012 exhibit that was held at the British Library. The free exhibition, which was open to the public during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, featured displays on Olympic philately, memorabilia, and numismatics. The Voice of America's London bureau chief, Al Pessin, was conducted on a tour of the exhibition by the show's curator, Bob Wilcock.
