Bad news for ticket hopefuls

The site allocating tickets for the London 2012 Anniversary Games is experiencing delays.

It comes after a similar system was criticised during the Olympics last summer, which meant people missed out on seeing the events that they wanted to.

However if you have already registered the 'Ticket Master' links and website are still working.

To try and get tickets, you must register. You can do this at British Athletics website, although it is experiencing problems at the moment.

On Sunday, Paralympic heroes Jonnie Peacock, Richard Whitehead, Mickey Bushell and Josie Pearson will take on some of the best athletes in the world in a one-day IPC International Challenge, fresh from competing at the IPC World Championships in Lyon.

Paralympic T44 100m champion, Jonnie Peacock said: "There’s a huge positive energy in the Stadium and it’s a bonus that it’s a super quick track. It holds great memories for me and it will be great to go back there nearly a year on and see what I’ve got to offer.”
