Report Anyone Got The Ticket Already? in Beijing 2008 Summer Games Posted December 21, 2007 Yes, I feel quite lucky that I still received some tickets. They gave out tickets on a "first come, first served" rule and I ordered the tickets about six weeks after the begin of the ticket sale. I regret that I did not hear of the start of the ticket sale earlier. Then I would have had the choice to buy any ticket, even for the ceremonies. I am very happy about the tickets for some athletics finals and the handball finals, as handball is a sport where the German team has good chances to reach the finals, as it did in Athens. Eight tickets (plus the women's marathon on August 17) is really enough for me. I don´t want to visit more than one sports event per day, as I need enough time to explore the sights of Beijing and the Great Wall in Badaling. I have never visited Olympic Games before, but this is the chance of my lifetime, as it is cheaper than ever. London would be much more expensive for me, although it is just a one hour flight from my hometown.
