Firstly , I would like to congratulate the athletes who are in peak condition and push the boundaries of human performance. Specially those who participate in my favorite sport womens beach volleyball. There's only one way to buy London Olympic tickets-- through the 'official' office that's controlled by the government. They've even solidified their monopoly by making it a CRIMINAL OFFENSE for individuals to resell Olympic tickets. The government's central planning of Olympic ticketing has been a complete failure, perhaps best evidenced by the THOUSANDS of empty seats at many of the events. .
