I’m trying hard to get into the Olympics spirit as I’ll be travelling to London on 6th August to witness some of the effects on the city first hand.
I had hoped to see a number of live events but, like many applicants, I applied for many tickets without success.
A lot of people I know didn’t manage to get any tickets so I counted myself fortunate to get some seats for diving heats in the Aquatics Centre. Better than nothing I decided philosophically.
Exceot that today I received an e-mail from London 2012 ticketing office which read as follows:
“Our records show you have purchased tickets to Diving at London 2012. Since we sent your tickets to you, we completed our final checks of the venue and discovered the view from your seat/s is restricted slightly by the installation of speakers as well as the overhang from the roof of the Aquatics Centre.
