This .10 cent Ethiopian stamp commemorating the 1964 Tokyo Olympics is a bit of an oddity. No Ethiopian basketball team participated in that year’s Olympics, which saw Abebe Bikila win his second gold medal in the Marathon.

“Many people know Ethiopia is a poor country. When I break a world record, maybe people get to know something else about Ethiopia, something good. We can’t make planes or cars, we don’t have the materials. We do what we can.”
— Haile.Gebrselassie
