Tickets remain available to see Pistorius in the 100 metres

TICKETS remain on sale for the session where Oscar Pistorius is expected to defend his 100 metres title at next year’s London Paralympics.

The International Paralympics Committee (IPC) still have tickets available from their website despite the window for tickets closing on Monday.

The IPC has sold out of tickets for some events, including the opening ceremony, trackcycling and wheelchair rugby but many others remain available, including the September 6 date involving the South African.

IPC chief executive Xavier Gonzalez said: “The demand for tickets for the London 2012 Paralympic Games is unprecedented with one million people showing their interest in tickets before they went on sale.

“Now that the LOCOG ticket window has closed, our authorised ticket reseller has a diverse number of tickets still available for what promises to be a spectacular Games next year.”
