I don't think the ticket prices are that bad. To see a final in most sports its £50 and you are getting to see the best athletes in the world. I am not rich but I am saving and have saved money for tickets. We have known about the olympics for ages so give over complaining you should have saved, we all knew that they were not not going to give the tickets away, they have to charge to make the olympics viable.

In this time where we are being asked to do things for nothing why not give out tickets for voluntary work. Also i thought we were suposed to be tightening our belts to pull us throgh these hard times, spare cash for tickets will have to go higher food, fuel and living costs Mr Camron etal.

I want to see some of the boxing finals but its a joke £95. Way over priced. You cant see any finals for cheaper than £30. The big finals like Mens 100M, Swimming all start at £50. Thats more than what i pay for a ticket at Arsenal. Rich will be fine but the poorer have no chance to see the big events. I think its shocking how poor the pricing has gone. Also £725 for the best seat for the 100M is what they call a 5star joke get a grip.

I think some of the prices are reasonable provided you research which sessions you want. I've applied for my family of 4 to see the tennis at wimbledon for 2 days. If i'm successful it will cost me £160. It would cost considerably more if I wanted to go to wimbledon to see the usual annual competition!!

Hey guys, I really think it's unfair to say these events are overpriced. £20 tickets are cheap in terms of sporting events. You can't expect the tickets to be cheaper than that considering how much it costs to have the games. Just don't go to a final and it's very cheap. There are also free events such as the marathon and even coming to London for the day will get you amongst the atmosphere. Getting to London is so cheap these days as well. Just do an internet search for cheap coach and train tickets!

I am a disabled person and unemployed and would love to have seen some of the cycling at the velodrome but at those prices, just cannot afford it. Sport for all, I think not, only for the privileged few. Thanks Seb.

This ballot is a nonsense. There are supposed to be £6 million tickets on sale, £2.8m registered and £58 million people in this country. You do the maths. I have applied for 3 events and a family of 4 for these events is £208 plus £6 delivery. Welcome to the FAMILY Olympics.

Alot of them are overpriced. My daughter is a 7 year old elite gymnast and really wants to go. The only way its possible is for me to apply for a ticket for the two of use, even though my husband would love to come we could not afford it. I would prefer to take her to a final, but cannot afford to, its not fair! This is an ideal time to encourage children to see sport and maybe fire a love for a certain sport and its not affordable!

So Lord snob coe & his chums have out-priced 90%+ of the population who don't live around london, no surprise there then! No doubt him and his "associates" will be given a free pass to every event, MP's 'n all. The public have to spend.. but never get to attend!! Good to see nothing has changed.
