The application process for the London 2012 Summer Olympics had finished two weeks ago and now sports fans across the globe have the chance to see if they can afford to snap up tickets for the Paralympics at London 2012 as well
The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, published its prices for the approximately two million tickets that will go on sale for the Paralympics from 9 September 2011. Tickets will cost as little as £5 for children and pensioners and £10 for adults. In fact the organisers say half of the two million tickets will be priced at £10 or less, 95% will cost £50 or less and 75% of tickets will be £20 or less.
As with the Summer Olympic Games, the most expensive tickets will be for the best seats at the opening ceremony but London 2012 Paralympics organisers hope low prices will bring big crowds to all the events.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "In 2012 London will play host to the world’s most exciting and talented Paralympic sportspeople. Interest is already huge and with some great ticket prices I want as many people as possible to be part of this fantastic event. From tennis to fencing and boccia to basketball, there is something for everyone, so start checking out what you want to see now so you are ready for when the tickets go on sale."
The website for tickets is the same as beforewww.tickets.london2012.com.
I think the Paralympics at London 2012 will be a great time to see the venues you may have missed in the rush for the Summer Games tickets. I am particularly interested in getting hold of Olympic Stadium tickets for the mens athletics. I think the UK's best athlete is David Weir and is someone I would definitely pay money to see. The London based athlete comes from just round the corner from me and is an inspiration to all.

Aviva did an advert featuring David Weir and his father recently. It is a great piece of video and his fathers narration is something special.
