Idiot

I had to take a chance that I wouldn't get the full allocation, so I applied for around £4,000 worth of tickets for 20 events. I got about £700 worth.
The money was taken out of my joint account on Saturday. I do not know what I have been allocated yet - I don't know whether it is my first choice or my 20th! I don't think the system is fair for people like me with a limited income.
I think I have got three sessions. I applied for swimming, athletics, archery, diving, and rowing, among others.
The tickets are for five of us. If we get some of the popular ones, one of us will have to stay at home because four tickets is the maximum allocation. It's a funny system.

"I don't think the system is fair for people like me with a limited income." 

If you're on a limited income, why did you apply for £4,000s worth of tickets!  In the end I didn't bother applying.  I bet you can't get a pint at the archery.
