Front row of the 200m start is just about the worst place anyone can sit at an athletics meeting and yet it seems that this area make sup some of the most expensive seats. This is quite obviously outrageous when no one had the chance to decide if this is where they preferred to watch the action from.
A simply stadium map at the beginning of the process with colour coding to indicate what tickets you were buying is all that I'm suggesting. It happens at every sporting event of music concert around the world but didn't in this case and we can only assume that's because there would have been a giant outcry when people saw what a rip off the whole process was.
Any body buying top price tickets would have expected for them to be on the finishing straight and they are not which in itself if disgraceful.
