In case you’re not really enthusiastic about football and you’re willing to skip that competition you can always choose from any of the other great sports that will be played in the 2012 Olympic Games. If you like contact sports you can always get a ticket to the boxing events or you can choose a more relaxing atmosphere and attend to the great number of water sports that will be displayed. Chilling under splashes of water at 30 degrees Celsius, watching people compete with each other sounds like a great choice, at least for me. And when I think that the venues are some of the greatest of their kind in Europe, I get even more encouraged to become a fan. For example Weymouth and Portland which are located on the south coast of England provide some of the best natural sailing waters in the UK while the other venues, even if not as popular, certainly rise up to their expectations.
