IN RETROSPECT...: In London, Jacquelin Magnay reported London Olympics organizers "have been forced to admit publishing incorrect figures after releasing a breakdown of official Olympic ticket sales." Following two years of "intense pressure from the London Assembly to detail the session by session break-up of Olympic ticket sales to the public," LOCOG released a 950-page report on Tuesday. It was "uploaded on to its website without any press release or prior warning" (TELEGRAPH, 12/19). In London, Magnay also wrote sports considered to be supported "by the well-heeled, such as equestrian eventing, modern pentathlon and sailing, were the biggest losers under the London 2012 Olympic Games ticket pricing" (TELEGRAPH, 12/20).
