  1. Still no news from Cosport for Canadian resident. I decided to change the place I will stay to be closer to a subway station (less than 100m from Siqueiros Campos station and also less than 150m from the Copacabana Beach). 170$CAD per night for a bed & breakfast. They charge for the Olympic exactelly double of the regular price.
  2. I was in Toronto a month ago for the swimming trials for the national team. The venue is absolutelly stunning. I wish we got a sport complex like that in Montréal (I'm jealous). Only negative point, it's very far from downtown Toronto. Over an hour when you use public transport (the venue is in Scarborough)
  3. Montréal 1976. In my hometown. 15 years old at that time. Got tickets for a lot of events including 38 finals (4 cycling track, 5 swimming, 1 diving, 8 rowing, 5 canoe-kayak and 15 track and field), but no Nadia
  4. Alain Bernard (swimming), Jeannie Longo (road cycling), Philippe Candeloro (figure skating) were also part of this TV show.
  5. I called Cosport yesterday. They told me we will receive the order form in early march. By the way, I secured today my place to stay in Rio during the Games. 300m from a subway station and 300m from Copacabana beach for 110$CAN per night (better for me than London, Vancouver, Beijing, Sydney and Atlanta). Very happy for that.

  7. All that list for Beijing : less than 1000$US (with a mix of A and B category) Same list for London : a little bit over 10000$US (that's the reason why I was there only for 6 days instead of 16) Rio : have no idea since the prices are not release yet. I will be happy if it's around 3 or 4000$US
  8. I will definitivelly be there in 2016 for the 16 days. Can't wait to receive the Cosport tickets offer in few months. Will try to get an agenda similar of the one I got for Beijing : 3 x swimming finals 4 x gymnastic finals 4 x athletics finals 2 x rowing finals (medals for Canada ?) 2 x canoe kayak finals (medals for Canada ?) 1 x boxing finals 1 x cycling track finals 1 x beach volleyball final 1 x tennis preliminaries 2 x basketball preliminaries 2 x volleyball preliminaries 2 x beach volleyball preliminaries 1 x badminton preliminaries 2 x diving preliminaries Will try to

  14. Received my tickets this morning (without Gymnastic as announced by Cosport) With 19 Travelcards (I need in reallity only 6 of them) Really unhappy of my seat location for Diving. I took a B category hoping to be near the diving's pool. No, I am at the extreme opposite. In fact, not even in front of the swimming's pool. I can not be more far. For the rest, I'm satisfy a lot. My best seat will be for a Taekwondo final, on the sixth row right in the front of the action. Happy for my Athletics tickets, I will be on the 21th row at around the 50 or 60 meters mark for the Men's 200m finals (ne

  22. Thanks for the info. I allready knew about that store and also the one for Lotus Team (also on Regent St.) I'm not looking for that type of goods since everything will be available for me in few weeks in Montreal when I will attend the Canadian Grand Prix. I'm looking more fore old memorabilia from the 80's and 90's like old Silverstone race program or everything related to Kimmi Raikonnen debut on Sauber Petronas and McLaren.
  23. Hi I have a question for F1 fans living in London. I'm searching a F1 memorabilia store in London, I heard about Alex Reade F1 Motorshop on Regent Street but they moved to Brands Hatch, closing their London Store. Is there others places you know in the London Area ? Thanks for helping me. (my son prefer I bring him a F1 souvenir than an Olympic souvenir from my trip this summer)
