    checked what i got for Rio first round and out 3 out of 26 sessions. 3 looks to be my magical number. thankfully i filled up my scheduled before the games so hopefully can do the same again.

    i looked yesterday and didn't think the prices were to bad. logged in today and have added AUD to the cost and its gone up. guessing yesterday it was in USD. Looks like cosport are still robbing us with a 20% fee. If i get half the tickets i requested im not going to be able to afford flights and accommodation.

    Was expecting to find out results of the ballot on Thursday 20th of June but cosport have now updated the website to be results TBA. Also notices Kingsports another ATR to most of the pacific nations is not issuing ballot results until 9th of July they are also waiting on pricing to be finalised.

    Good news is they are non binding so in the last few days i set my friends up with accounts and requested more tickets. Its like getting free lottery tickets.

    for Rio i had 2 account and submitted the same requests on both accounts. Requested 13 sessions on each account and got 0/13 and 3/13 all at lower ticket category. Also found this in the ticket request conformation Something Cosport have never done before so this might suggest that price conformation will not be completed before the 31 May cut of date.

    I have a few accounts but in different Names address and credit cards and have done this for the last 3 games. you just might find you end up with extra tickets that you have to try and get ride of but that generally not to hard.

    Just called Cosport Australia and spoke to a lovely lady who was very helpful (unusual for Cosports) they are till waiting for pricing approval. Cosport set prices/fees then AOC have to approve and then Tokyo 2020 have to approve, its awaiting Tokyo's approval. She was sure it would be approved before the 31 May cut off date. If for some reason the prices were not approved before 31 May she said submit your request and any tickets you got that were over your budget they would let you cancel just the tickets that were to expensive. The exchange rate and fees are capped and can not exceed 20% of the face value of the ticket. Higher priced tickets also have a cap on the fee so a AU$2000 wouldn't have a AU$400 fee it would be a lower fee. Deliver fee will again be AU$47 or 48 and you will only be charged one fee even if you have multiple order. We also had a quick chat about Rio and will call windows and she said Tokyo was much better organised and ticket collection will be much simpler and faster.

    Cosport is now live and lets you request tickets for all session and categories but no prices. How can you plan a budget for tickets without prices.

    At this stage i haven't even found what the costs are in JPY normally there is a pdf with all session cost and ticket categories. Im amusing they will do the usual JPY to USD at an inflated rate then USD to AUD at another inflated rate plus the $50 delivery fee. Japaneses ticket site goes live in about 30 min so hopefully i will be able to see the JPY cost per session.

    Swimming finals in the morning is much better for spectators than 10pm start time like in was in Rio. I did 2 nights of swimming and didnt get back to my accommodation until 2.30am I have already started my spreadsheet with must see events and very much looking froward to paying Cosport an exaggerated exchange rate and service fee for little to no service.
