Despite widespread complaints from failed ticket applicants about the 2012 London Olympics ticket allocation fiasco, there is at least one man who can't understand what all the fuss is about.
Solly Grundy of Manchester, claims to have hundreds of tickets available - even for the traditional prestige events, such as the 100 and 200 metres finals, the boxing finals, the 110 metre hurdles and many others.
Grundy claims to have obtained his ticket supply through strictly legal channels, and chuckled when told of the frustrations of thousands of regular punters in their quest for tickets.
He insists that there are mountains of tickets available, but that they probably won't be released until such time as the demand price peaks. He went on to say that, as with any event requiring tickets for entry, it all comes down to supply and demand, and that it isn't about what you know, it's more to do with who you know.
Grundy picks his tickets up from a variety of sources who have inside access to them. He usually trades in tickets for football and music events, but he's happy to diversify into Olympic Games tickets. His aim is to obtain a minimum of ten times what he paid for the tickets, plus a 76% booking fee and a 50% delivery fee. He shuns banks and online payment systems such as Paypal, saying:
"Look, with me it's strictly cash in hand. If some mug punter wants to watch some silly sod run around a track, row a boat, chuck a spear or any of that rubbish, that's their business. If they want tickets to enable them to do that, they come to me. Long as they've got a fistful of folding, everything's sweet."

Although it's probably better to use a reputable ticket agency - if such an entity actually exists.
More as we get it.
