  2. For Canada it's now with ATPI that we have to deal with instead of Cosport. I tried to get tickets in their first release last year but got nothing. Disapointed I then decided to skip Tokyo after being at the three last Summer Games. Three days ago I received a e-mail from ATPI announcing the release of a new batch of tickets. Having in mind that I will not go to the Tokyo Games; I was curious to see what events were available. Big surprise seeing almost all Finals sessions available for each sports (except Swimming) I then decided to finally go to Japan in August 2021
  3. Canoe Kayak Canada just announced they got a place for the Men K2 following the suspension of the russian team.

  5. According to them, I will see 3 Gold, 3 Silver and 5 Bronze. (at the Beijing Games I saw 2-2-4)
  6. Cubebox, Usually, at every Olympics there's a lot of pins available at the Official Souvenir Store (hundreds of them) Those are logo pins, mascot pins, venue pins, sport pins (for each sports), etc... But those have no value for the real collector. The real thing for them is the NOC pins, dated or not (NOC for National Olympic Commity). That's the pins given to the athletes for trade with others athletes. They are very hard to find. Dated means that the Rio 2016 Logo is add on the pin. Some others collectors wants only Media pins, others Sponsor pins. Security pins, et

  11. Heineken Holland House : you have to go on their website to buy tickets (15euros good for one day only)
  12. Called Cosport today They said it's longer in my case because I have a lot of invoices under the same account and they want to make only one shipment. They told me It should be ship this week
  13. The Binstock/Schachter duo won their ticket for Rio this afternoon in North Bay with a win against Pedlow/O'Gorman First match in Rio will be saturday 6th in the morning against Alison/Bruno Schmidt (BRA), the 2015 World Champions (Alison also won the Silver at the 2012 London Game wth another partner, Emanuel) So, a very huge command for our canadians, but I will be in the stands with my canadian flag to cheer for them. GO CANADA

  15. Since a lot of us will be there staying near the General Osorio Metro Station, who will be interesting in a meeting at the Shenanigans Irish Pub (as proposed by Rastafounder few weeks ago). We all have a busy schedule with a lot of events, so maybe we can try to meet on Thursday the 4th. I can be there around 21h00. It will be hard for me to find another date. The place is one block away from the metro station. Who's interested ?

  18. I realized today that we can now see the seating chart of all venues on the Rio website. Simply click on Guides in the left side click then on Venues select your sport then click on the word Map enlarge the map and you will see all the sections (the more you enlarge the map, the better it is) I'm now able to see where I will be with all the tickets I bought via Rio (they gave us imediatelly the section, the row and the seat number) For the big majority of my tickets, bought via Cosport, I will have to receive it before knowing where I will be. The seven A category I got for Swimming ar

  20. Less than two months ago, I panicked to the idea of not getting any ticket for Swimming finals. Since June 1st, with direct acces to Rio tickets website, I was able to grab 7 of the 8 Finals sessions (only SW008 missing because I have Volleyball with Canada-Brasil that night) The best thing, I paid for each of my A category tickets 340$CAN instead of the 585$CAN asked by Cosport (434$US plus the 1.35 exchange rate) I added also others tickets via their website, Beach Volleyball Final, Wrestling Finals, etc... My total of Finals for Rio is now 115 (on a total of 306).
  21. I'm also very close to General Osorio Station (on Canning street)
