I hope to be there as well on the other end of media operations :p

 

Have you applied yet to go? I believe the accreditation system has opened up and expires rather quickly.

You mean you will be there as an actual reporter if everything goes well? :d 

 

And seriously, ticket sales already almost expire? You can't even buy tickets in the Olympic season itself? :yikes:

Sorry I misunderstood you. I thought you were going to go there as a reporter (so you would need accreditation for that). Ticket sales start next year apparently.

No I didn't literally mean as reporter :p 

 

I would "report" from the Olympics if I'm there and through a certain Brazilian biathlete maybe get some inside reports from the Olympic village :d
