    I read somewhere one the Australian team members said their uniform made them look like lawn bowlers. I don't think he was pleased. LOL :D

    Dare to be bold, deviating from the norm doesn't mean the colours don't match, in fact it fits each respective Olympic venues (view from the top)! We are just so preconditioned...

    But, most important, the usual predominant colours are security codes...smart thinking!;)

    answer to your second question, no.
    Only football you can get tickets at the door, nothing else

    I just checked again, looks like they've been sold in the 30 hours between checking, doesn't show the tickets anymore. They were just for the morning session on Saturday though.
