Olympic ticket sales fail

Sale of Olympic tickets in Beijing has been stopped again! With the recommencement of ticket sales in Beijing on Tuesday the online computer systems crashed. Olympic fans could not buy tickets due to between 3.5 million and 8 million people trying to get online, depending on whose numbers you believe.

Telephone sales also failed due to overwhelming numbers of people congesting the lines! Banks were scenes of long queues of people scrambling to get tickets so they could also enjoy the Olympic Games.

At this point in time the official word has been that sales will resume again on 5th November. One can't help but wonder how things will be any different then!

***Ticket sales news! For people in China trying to access ticket sales through internet, telephone or bank outlets there will be further information announced on Monday 5th November.
Good luck Beijing!
