Postbox goes gold for rower Tom James

Our friends at Wrexham.com took a great picture this morning (Sunday) of a postbox in Wrexham being painted gold in honour of local boy Tom James who on Saturday chalked up a gold medal in the London Olympics.

Rower Tom, 28, stroked to glory with his three team mates in the mens' coxless four.
Other postboxes in Wales are being painted gold to mark the achievements of Welsh Olympians.
The one outside the Cambrian in Townhill, Wrexham joins a box in Cardiff honouring cyclist Geraint Thomas who grabbed gold on Friday.
Both Tom James and Geraint Thomas also won at their events at the Beijing Olympics four years ago.
On the BBC’s Olympic round-up programme on Sunday morning, Tom James told presenter Michal Husain that he was unsure what the next move would be in his glittering sports career.
Asked if he would go on rowing, he answered: “I don’t know, but never say never.”
