My aim was low and vague when applying for Olympic tickets going for sports unlikely to garner much interest beyond desperados like me including Greco-Roman wrestling.

And so it is my fate that I will be going to the greatest show on earth to watch some Turkish midget power lift the weight of a car above his head in the powerlifting competition.

I’ll have to bone up on all the jargon about snatch and lifts, clean jerks and like.

A friend also snaggled some fencing tickets so its real crème de la crème stuff come summer 2012.
