London Olympics: Ticket Frenzy

Every evening in London there's a fever of excitement as a small number of additional Olympic tickets are suddenly released, unannounced.

The whisper goes round, phone calls are made, texts sent - go online now to get your tickets. In the feeding frenzy you have to apply quickly - you snooze, you loose, and the web site's irritating waiting time eats away at nerves.

Of course you know what my first, second and third choices were last night for a ticket for today, but it wasn't to be. While checking with a friend suffering with 'flu the few remaining places for sailing were snapped up.

I tried again to find something else for but athletics, cycling, kayaking, rowing and tennis were all gone.

So I'm off to the beach volleyball - ah well, mustn't grumble.
