Just a quick reminder that individual event tickets to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia are now on sale. I logged on exactly at Noon Eastern when they went on sale and had very good success in getting some events I wanted. Thankfully, once you added tickets to your cart they were safe there for 45 minutes. I first added the very popular events like ice skating, and then added some other events that were slightly less popular. I didn’t personally see Opening Ceremony tickets available.
Even if you have not yet logged on to make a purchase, there are still many events available (screen shot below taken just before 4PM Eastern)….just not things like the opening ceremony or figure skating. I wouldn’t be shocked if they pop us as available from time to time, but for right now they are sold out via CoSport.com (the official site for the US, Canada, Australia, and more).
I purchased figure skating, snowboarding, and speed skating, so I am pretty jazzed to have a few different events to experience. Now the focus will shift to securing flights and accommodations, and I’ll be sure to share my experience doing that as it happens. I imagine accommodations will be the most “interesting” part of the ordeal.
Okay, who all is heading to Sochi?!
