There is no better one-Zoe @London 2012

English version click here Intro 自從去年在Montpellier看完世錦賽後 (心得這邊走:Not Perfect but Happy Ending-the magic week in Montpellier),一直在想著到底要不要去看倫敦奧運。我是非常希望能現場親眼見證小兔寶 (Zhenya)創造歷史完成RG史上首位在奧運個人全能二連霸/贏兩面金牌的選手。RG迷都知道她機會很大。而且我一直想著如果這次不去看她,以後機會可能很小了。因為猶豫不決所以我錯過正常買票的時機。奧運官網的線上售票系統只限英國跟歐盟國家的居民購買,其他地區的民眾得找官方授權的代理商。而且一開始售票是用抽籤的,抽到的人才可以買。這段我不是很清楚。反正後來就算線上開放售票了,在台灣就只能找運佳旅行社。我打電話去詢問時,票已經沒有了。所以我後來是在eBay買到了個人全能決賽那天的票。我打算資格賽也看的,但當時時間緊迫,我想等到了倫敦在去買就好。雖然正式管道都已經沒有票了,但我相信要買絕對買的到!
