Half of synchronised swimming ticket holders delighted with cock up

MANY converts to Olympic synchronised swimming are to be disappointed – the organisers have oversold the event. The London Olympic Organising Committee (Locog) wants 3,000 people to hand back their tickets because every seat has been sold to two bottoms. Locog are killjoys. Lapsitting will bring the nation together. Team GB is tops at sitting down sports – cycling, rowing, yachting. We’d have felt at one with the athletes.

But Locog says that every disappointed fans of artful drowning will have their tickets exchanged for athletics and diving. They have been offered seats at events they originally applied for but did not receive through the public ballot.

So. Where did these news tickets for the primo events in the stadium come from? Well, the organisers have retained 1.3 million tickets for general sale on a first-come first-served basis in May. These are the tickets from the so-called “kill areas” set aside for sponsors and the media

Those of you who opted for the ping-pong over the synchronised swimming may be kicking yourselves…
