500 days to go until the London Olympics!

2012 Olympic tickets go on sale

There are now 500 days to go until the London Olympics in 2012!

Tickets for the games have gone on sale, with the most expensive events priced at £2,012.

Organisers say there will be special offers to help kids see the events. Children under 17 will be able to "pay your age" to some of the early heats.

A giant clock has been put up in London's Trafalgar Square which is counting down the time until it all kicks off.

But the coutdown clock broke down - just a few hours after it launched!

What do you think of the Olympics?

The makers of the clock said they were "disappointed" that it had stopped, and hoped it would be working soon.
