The London Olympics are only 470 days away. I hope that they turn out well; I wish I could be there, but I’ll probably have to wait until 2016 Rio before I get the chance (if the world’s chaos has cleared up by then, or at least has not gotten so bad that they don’t hold the Olympics then).
If you want to get tickets to the games, now is the time to act. They are taking applications for the tickets between now and April 26th at Tickets.london2012.com, if you are a resident of the United Kingdom or of one of the designated European countries. If you’re a US citizen like me, you’ll have to get your tickets through Cosport.com, the official ticket reseller. If you’re from another country, you can check the ticket availability page to see where you can buy your tickets.
For more information about the 2012 Olympics, I am keeping a Squidoo page on the subject.
