The deadline for you to apply for Olympic tickets is 11.59pm tonight. Click here to apply.
- We want to see a sport where Britain has a half-decent chance of winning a medal (so no beach volleyball)
- We want to go to something in the Olympic Park itself, since it's the heart of the event (so no rowing or football)
- We want to go to something outdoorsy, since we don't like sitting indoors on a sunny day and we're hoping that the London Olympics will have decent weather (so no cycling or swimming)
- Our young kids, turned on to the Olympics via Mario and Sonic, are likely to get bored by sports that involve participants standing around a lot or which are determined by technical criteria, like who grabbed whose lapel first (so no track and field)
