    Rio 2016 Tickets

    Hi, I am looking to sell these tickets, have 2 to each. Also, does anyone have suggestions on how to resell tickets??? We got a lot at the beginning because we didn't know how easy or hard it would be to get the finals tickets we want and now have too many (lucky us!) So just looking to make our money back. Any advice is appreciated! Thanks! I'm looking to sell these, 2 tickets to each: GA002 C or D BX017 B BK054 C SW005 C SW011 A AT007 D AT013 C AT015 D

    I'm confused by the basketball scheduling. I have ticket to BK054 (on the 17th, 2:30-4), would that include seeing the USA team?

    Rio Olympics and I

    I'll be there in Rio from beginning to end! Staying in Barra, but venturing out for some other events in the other areas. Hoping to get my hands on some more swimming. Hope to see some of you there!

    Accommodation for the 2016 Summer Olympics

    We are staying in an apartment close to the Olympics events in the Barra area (near aquatics, gymnastics, basketball, golf, etc.) and there is an extra bedroom with a single bed that we would like to rent out. It is available from Aug 5th - 23rd. If you are interested send me a message and we can discuss more details.

    Cool!! What category did you get and for how much?! So lucky! How do you trust the sellers on ebay? I'm assuming you're paying a lot for opening tickets, so I'd be worried about fraud.

    Well cosport wasn't a total loss. My friend got us a set of tickets to a gymnastics and swimming event. She started as 1200 in line and I was about 1800something. By the time I logged in a lot were gone. Hope everyone did well and got a few of what they wanted!! Now we wait and see about the rest! Any advice on the best way to try and snag a pair of tickets to Opening Ceremony??

    I've been having luck with the Dertour site... just scored my first set of swimming tix!! Also got some good diving tix and others. If you're able to buy tix form there I suggest checking their site often as well. Cosport has yet to give me anything decent, but still waiting.

    My friend and I booked an apartment close in Bara using booking.com. Its a 2 bedroom, one with a double bed and one with a single... so as it gets closer to the games if there's anyone looking to crash in the room with the single bed we'd be happy to host you and split costs! Also, I just went to a flee market in Israel recently & found some Olympic pins from Russia's 1980 :-p So we'll be adding some pin trading into the Olympic fun-ness!!!

    Rio 2016 Tickets

    I am going with a friend and I mainly want Swimming, but have yet secured any of those, even qualifiers. But we decided early on to go for the full 2 weeks and just soak in what we can of the whole Olympic experience and support Team USA! My friend is the gymnastics fan,and she wants womens all around and team finals. We have secured 3 Gymnastic events (GA002, GA003 and GA006) and we have an extra set to GA002, so stay informed and as it gets closer I think you can find people to trade or buy tix from. We made a detailed calendar or all the events we want to try and see... We have a random mix of other sports (basketball, fencing, table tennis, boxing) and even scored some amazing Athletics tickets. We have a budget and we are going with tickets but we both want one gymnastics and one swim final, so we will find a way!!!! I'm still hoping for swim but you definately have to put in the work, and I was able to have a friend let me use their address in London so I can get tix through the other EU ATR's... I'll figure out some way to get my tickets once they are sent out. If there is a will, there is a way.... but from what I can see the tickets won't just fall in to your lap.

    Part of the fun is the excitment of when you do secure an event you wanted (just snagged AT011 today!!! woohoo!) and the anticipation of the games. But I def see how people may not have the time, patience or money (took me 3 hours to finally book one set of tickets from Dertour this morning) This is a bucket list thing for me, and I will be there for the entirety of the games and hoping to see as many events as I can. However, swimming is the one I'm most passionate about seeing but have yet to book any tickets to those events :-/
