The Tokyo Organizing Committee sent emails today (October 2, 2019) to people who signed up for the Tokyo2020 Paralympic ticket lottery found out whether they were lucky or not. I had already struck out twice in the ticket lottery for Olympic events, so I was not optimistic.
As it turned out, my email went straight to the junk folder so I didn’t notice it until the evening. And the contents weren’t junk!
“We are happy to inform you…..”
That’s all I needed to know. When I went to the website, signed in, and saw what I won, it was kind of depressing at first. All the events I wanted started with the word “Sorry”. Tickets for the first six events I applied for were not available.
But as I scrolled all the way to the bottom, I saw that I had attained tickets for great events: the opening and closing ceremonies.
