No.

My daughter said that there were adverts for the tickets last November in London when she was there.

Official tickets don't go on sale until 15th March. Any tickets being offered for sale before then will not be genuine.

I will. I'm not going to sit here while the Olympic games are being held in my own city and not attend.

I am a great fan of the Olympics as a concept (putting aside financial implications for host countries) and was pleased when we were awarded the 2012 games. As a previous athlete myself and my grandfather was an Olympic gold medal winner I was looking forward to being able to attend the games.

Thinking more now about the TV coverage that we will get, I would rather book time off work and watch live coverage than pay out for ticket, travel and accommodation as I live in Birmingham.

In the UK we will probably get the best TV coverage ever of an Olympic event and I dare say that if the commentary teams are up to scratch it will be good viewing.

I have previously taken time of work during the second week of Olympics purely to watch live coverage of track & field. I do not yet know what the costs for me might be to attend but the comfort of home and constant TV coverage are appealing.

Will I be going? Yes.

Will I get to the track and field finals? Depends on whether they'll change me $20,000,000 Zimbabwe note...

If you're applying for tickets online you can only do so with a VISA debit or credit card - no other cards will be accepted.

It's also worth remembering that ticket sales will not be on a first-come, first-served basis, so there's no need to rush to make your attempt on the first day.

There are only two ways to apply for tickets:-

Via the official ticket site (tickets.london2012.com)

Or by form, obtainable in high streets from 15th March.

No Zimbabwe banknotes accepted I'm afraid.

See you in the stadium.

...or be square.

While I'm a great fan of athletics (Derek Ibbotson was one of my PE instructors when I was training, and I was always in the top ten in cross country until my late teens when the beer took over!) I'm not such a great fan of professional sport, so I will not be seeing a lot of the games, even on TV.
