I asked for female volleyball tickets but got the shot-putt

Have your say

What a fiasco the 2012 Olympics ticket lottery has become. Many people who applied received nothing, including the Mayor of London Boris Johnson!

Many simply applied for a small, sensible number of tickets but missed out. Others applied for many in the hope that maybe they stood a better chance.

This policy paid off for a few, except for one chap who got very lucky and received £11,000 worth of tickets!

I made a blanket request for many and was lucky enough to obtain some. Sadly the ones I received were not for the event I really wanted.

I asked for the female beach volleyball. Sadly I’ve obtained tickets for the female shot-putt instead.

Anyone want to swap?
