    Tokyo Olympic Tickets thread

    Rant that only you guys will understand: I'm meeting up with some friends in Tokyo, one of whom is a first-timer. He read a news article that said there is huge demand for tickets in Japan, so we are DOOMED. We went thought the cosport offering and only got tickets for one event, so we are DOOMED. Cosport had a second round and it took three hours to get online and all tickets were sold out, so you guessed it, we are DOOMED. I've tried to explain how the process has worked (though I have to caveat by saying this is how it has worked in the past and I can't promise it will be the same for 2020) and there is zero reason to panic. He's not buying it. Sheesh.

    And yet that's the one ticket I did get (in the US).

    Try hard to get that changed. They might not be able to add delivery to this order, because CoSport, but try. And if you add more tickets in the future, try again

    If cosport list two different days, I’d say it’s about a 30% chance of coming out the first date listed, 40% chance of coming out the second day and a 50% chance of coming out a completely different day. And no, that doesn’t seem to add up, but we are using cosport math here. Just to repeat something I said earlier, this is the first ticketing round of many. And the first round is by far the hardest for getting tickets. Over the years I’ve been shut out in the initial round many times, but have always ended up with more than enough.

    Tokyo 2020 Look of the Games

    LinkParkFan - I so agree that these games would be better if Nintendo opened up their entire catalog of characters. Instead we get Amy Rose and Robotnik. Bummer. But I still enjoy them and will buy Tokyo 2020. One cool thing is the blink-and-you'll-miss-it switch to retro graphics at 0:32 in the first Sonic&Mario video above. What's really neat is that the livery switches to Tokyo 1964. I really hope they make that a whole mode and not just a quick visual gag.

    Of course, Cosport didn't get their ticket prices approved in time. Can't say which I hate more - Cosport, or the USOC for taking their bribes and making us use them.

    Every games I say I’m only going to get a few tickets. And every games I fail. This time for sure! A buddy of mine is coming with his family. I’m tacked onto his order for some athletics and a sport climbing ticket. I won’t be filling an initial request myself When I start seriously looking, karate will be at the top of my list. Maybe golf, maybe modern pentathlon. I have narrowed things down a bit by committing to the second week and ruling out any event in the Tokyo Bay Zone (other than that sport climbing ticket with my buddy) Good luck everyone!

    Note to any newbiews... there are many rounds of tickets and opportunities between official rounds. By far the hardest round is the first. Don't be discouraged or take it as an omen if you are shut out initially.
  12. Well, yeah. I'm all for other opinions. That's why I asked. So... what's the justification for Allyson Felix over the William's Sisters?
  13. Again I repeat... Venus and Serena Williams. Honestly, I don't understand where this is much debate. Other than Michael Phelps, what's the justification for picking someone over Venus and Serena?
  14. For exactly the reason you think. New name is just World Taekwondo.

    McDonald's bails out of TOP programme

    Again, I'm sure there will be leaks and hints that McDonald's was pushed. Even if it's not true, the IOC will want to save face. They could go the health food angle, or suggest McDonalds was too pushy and demanding.
