From the Opening Ceremony on July 27th, through Athletics and Gymnastics.
It took ages inputting my name, address, credit card details, event, seat numbers etc etc....well...actually I asked my kind, kind partner to do it for me - because I was worried I'd make a mistake in the Japanese language on the Pia Ticket website.
The results of this lottery will be announced on August 5th.
Either I will get nothing
I will get too many tickets and then I'll have to pay for them all and be bankrupt!
I decided there was no point in applying for sports where Japan is strong, such as judo or swimming. And I really can't get excited about a canoe race.
So - Athletics or Gymnastics.
Crossing my fingers!
