Who would like two tickets to go see the Olympics Volleyball?

Thank you for all the entries! We have our winner – Robbie Craig comment number 82!

We’re in full “giveaway” competition mode here on London Cyclist. On Wednesday we gave a £500 Wiggle voucher to London Cyclist reader Esteban who is putting it to good use towards a new bike. Today, I’ve been given the opportunity by Thomas Cook 2012to give away a Games Breaks package to one of my readers.

Thomas Cook is the official provider of short breaks to the London 2012 games. The giveaway includes official London 2012 Volleyball competition tickets and accommodation for two people for one night. The winner will need to book their place by the end of May.

The Volleyball is on the 3rd of August and held at Earls Court.

If this sounds like something you’d like to take part in then normal competition rules apply and all you have to do is enter by leaving a comment below on which sport you are most looking forward to seeing at the 2012 Olympics. As per usual we will be picking the winner completely at random.

    I want to go to the table tennis, to see in real life how on earth the pros do that super fast spinny stuff.

    It’s not because you have tickets, but volleyball is what I would want to see…

  7. Alex 07/04/2012 at 4:38 pm #

    I’d really like to see the mens road race or the beach volleyball, of course!

    I’d love to see the cycling. The road race (which I’m a keen enthusiast) would be brilliant, bu the velodrome stuff would be an incredible opportunity to see, considering how strong our cycling teams are at the moment.

    My dad is a mad cycling enthusiast who emigrated from Italy to Australia in 1954. He told me how he and his mates walked into the Olympic village to meet their Italian cycling heroes (imagine trying to do that today!). He used to take to me the old Olympic velodrome to watch events, so I thought it would be great to watch the same events here in London, especially as there is such a big rivalry between Australia and GB right now.

    Has to be watching Hoy in the track cycling!

    basketball, specially if Spain is playing 🙂

  15. Claire Martin 09/04/2012 at 11:37 am #

    I should say the road cycling, but I am not so secretly looking forward to the synchronised swimming!

  16. MelissaW 09/04/2012 at 5:27 pm #

    Swimming. Can’t wait to see Michael Phelps in action again!

  17. Iggy 09/04/2012 at 6:55 pm #

    The elimination races at the velodrome – men’s and women’s world championship eliminations have been the most thrilling form of sport I’ve seen in years.

  22. Coallers 10/04/2012 at 8:50 am #

    The UCI World Championships at the Velodrome and after the stronf performance in Mebourne I’m looking forward to all of the track events. Of course, two tickets to the volleyball would be a great second place.

  23. ben 10/04/2012 at 10:32 am #

    It has to be the team pursuit.

    My friends who’ve already been to the velodrome said the atmosphere when the british were riding was amazing.

  24. Stewart 10/04/2012 at 12:45 pm #

    Mens final basketball would be sweet. I’m assuming the US team will be in there based on their lineup.

  25. Deano 10/04/2012 at 3:01 pm #

    Mens Road race, go Cav go…

  26. kathleen hooper 10/04/2012 at 6:05 pm #

    I would love to have been able to get tickets for the canoe slalom and the new whitewater course. We didn’t manage it, so will have to make do with the TV coverage

  27. Paul 10/04/2012 at 9:58 pm #

    I would love to see the mens 100m sprint relays. The fastest men alive all in one blur!

  28. Daniel Rice 10/04/2012 at 11:14 pm #

    Sailing in Weymouth

  29. Peter Davis 11/04/2012 at 8:32 am #

    Eveything will be fantastic to watch but the cycling tops it all.

  30. James 11/04/2012 at 9:55 am #

    Looking forward to the sailing in Weymouth and Hockey in the Olympic park 🙂

  31. migui_blu 11/04/2012 at 1:01 pm #

    Cycling! Gonna have a go at the official route to better understand the difficulty of what they’re undergoing as I’m watching. BOOM!

  32. robbie craig 11/04/2012 at 4:47 pm #

    I love marshmallows – which I believe is the unofficial name for the building the event will be held in. Like cycling too…

  33. susan bewley 12/04/2012 at 4:57 pm #

    i’m looking forward to the paralympics as i think we are going to see some really fabulous fit young veterans do GB proud

  34. Beth 12/04/2012 at 7:31 pm #

    Swimming – one of ‘the’ olympic sports to me. I tend to like cycling myself more than watching it for some reason.

  35. Dan Goodhind 13/04/2012 at 1:45 pm #

    I’m looking forward to the womens and mens beach volleyball which I was lucky enough to get tickets to late in the process!

  36. Andreas 16/04/2012 at 11:20 am #

    A volleyball game consists of two teams playing against each other. Each team will generally have six players. The team is split up into three players in the back of the court and three players in the front near the net. The net separates the court into two sections. A game of volleyball can be played inside or outside. The court is rectangular and divided directly down the middle. The net is quite high, much higher than tennis. The goal is to make the ball hit the ground on the other teams side…
