OLYMPIC GAMES TICKETS

Athletes will receive two complimentary tickets for each day the athlete competes. Tickets for each session will be distributed as the athlete progresses through the rounds. If the athlete does not make the finals, they will not receive tickets for that session.

In addition to the complimentary tickets the London Local Organizing Committee and the International Olympic Committee will have two additional tickets available for purchase by the athlete. The same distribution system will apply. This program will be running during Games time and will be facilitated thru the USOC via USATF.

In total, competing athletes will have the opportunity to secure four (4) tickets for each session in which they compete (two complimentary and two for purchase).

NOTE: If an athlete wishes to have their personal coach in the stadium during competition, the personal coach must either purchase his/her own ticket OR the athlete may use one of their allotted tickets for the personal coach.
