Canada's Peninsula News reports Kevin Kowalyk smiled when he saw Canada Post’s commemorative Rowing Canada stamp at a recent ceremony. 

While he's not on the stamp, he and his team mate Michael Braithwaite be manning the double scull depicted on the stamp during the upcoming London 2012 Olympics.  

Kowalyk is quoted as saying in the article by Travis Paterson, "“That’s totally our boat, so this is pretty cool."

Designed by Kosta Tsetsekas and Mike Savage of Vancouver-based Signals Design, and illustrated by Keith Martin, metallic ink was used to enhance the ripples in the water so it seems to move as light plays across the surface of the stamp according to Canada Post.

Rowing became an Olympic event when Paris hosted the Games in 1900.

Shown above, Kowalyk and Braithwaite with the new stamp.
