Yup. I'm waiting for my e-mail to apply for tickets.

From Cosport.com (for U.S. people):

Quote:
The CoSport website is currently being updated for the commencement of the London 2012 Ticket Request Phase. Please check back mid afternoon United States EDT (Eastern Daylight Time).
You will have 5 weeks to submit your Ticket Request so please take your time and carefully review the competition schedule before submitting a Ticket Request. There is no need to rush as Ticket Requests are not confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please note the following CoSport Ticketing Timeline:

* March 15, 2011 - April 22, 2011 - Ticket Request Phase period.
* End April/early May – conduct ballot for oversubscribed events (if applicable)
* Mid-May 2011 - Communication of Ticket Request Phase confirmation results sent to customers.

*All dates are subject to change

I'm nervous and psyched to see if I get anything.


For U.S. folks:

Quote:
CoSport Timeline

· Mid-May, 2011 –Ballot for oversubscribed sessions is conducted.

· Starting the week of May 23, 2011 – Results communicated to customers.

· June 28, 2011 – Live Sales on a first come, first served basis from any remaining available inventory. The exact time will be posted on our website (www.cosport.com) one week before the live sales commences.



Notification Period

Starting the week of May 23, 2011, CoSport will send an e-mail to all customers notifying you if you have been successful in obtaining tickets. Customers that are successful will be notified first and will have until Friday, June 3, 2011 to review what has been confirmed and verify their payment details in order to complete the order. During this time, you can log into the “My Account” section of the website to view your confirmation.



Payment of Tickets

If you are successful in obtaining tickets, you will be required to pay for your tickets by Friday, June 3, 2011. If your billing information needs to updated, you can do so at this time directly through your account. Please do not contact us to update your credit card information as this can be done when completing the order. You will also have the opportunity to add shipping to your order if you did not select it during the Ticket Request Phase. If you have previously paid for shipping, you can update your shipping contact details as well.



Once CoSport begins to communicate the Ticket Confirmation results during the week of May 23, 2011, please ensure that you have necessary funds available to purchase any tickets that have been confirmed to you.

Thanks.

I learned from Vancouver that there is absolutely no point in applying for non-medal events. Those are pretty easy to get and quite possibly for below face-value.

I'm only going for medal events, specifically swimming, track and gymnastics.
We'll see.

After submitting a request for 22 tickets to 11 events, I got my notification that I was awarded 2 tickets--pretty lucky considering how many requests CoSport said they had.

But, if you were to pick the only 2 tickets that you would receive, which event would be the most awesome news?

2 tickets to the Men's Gold Medal Football Match? Holy Shit!!!

I don't know if we'll make it, but that was a nice surprise.

I may pass through South Korea next summer. I'll see if it's worth more of my time later.

Sochi, Russia ain't looking good for me in 2014, and it ain't looking good for them either. I don't know the latest, but Heather has been following it in the international construction trade pubs (her life is seriously glamorous ), and I think the IOC is nervous.

It's a little UK-centric and male.

Bring back the androgynous, nebulous Olympic creatures that we all know and love.

I could hardly have hoped for better Olympic news!

No David Beckham for Team GB...that sucks. I'm more excited for the women's tourney, but would've been more interested in the men's to see if he could medal.

I think Brazil will get their first soccer/football men's gold medal (how have they not yet?!). Silver to GB & Bronze to South Korea (bold pick).
Women's - Gold to USA, Silver to Japan, Bronze to Great Britain. Well, England + 2 Scots. Pretty open though - Canada, Brazil, France or Sweden could medal too. Will get some Women's World Cup rematches.

Getting real close now. Cannot wait.

Natalie Cook became the first Australian female to qualify for five Olympics. Beach Volleyball dating back to Atlanta.

Phelps vs Lochte.

It is literally the best thing to happen to swimming since the invention of water.
