If you are trying to buy tickets to the 2008 Olympics, you might face some unexpected challenges. Voice of America reported that China's Olympic ticket sales system crashed earlier this week.
Tickets to the 2008 Beijing Games are being sold in phases, with the first two rounds of tickets going only to Chinese citizens. Sales are currently stalled after unexpected demand crashed the ticket sales computer system.
On November 5, the Chinese Olympic organizers will announce the schedule of future ticket sales.
