With most of the Olympic tickets now dispersed, your best chance of getting one now lies in the hands of the Games’ partners and sponsors.

KayakAttack is a Flash game which you can play in your browser. All you have to do is log your score and submit some information about yourself and your role at work to be entered into a random draw for Olympic tickets.
