The ticket sale was originally launched last Saturday on Nov. 7.

According to VANOC's latest news release, the website selling tickets is experiencing high volume of visitors as expected and the wait time for customers is comparable to the first sale days of earlier phases of ticketing program.

VANOC said that over 100,000 tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis in the third and final phase of tickets sales.

The 2010 Winter Games will be held between Feb. 12 and 28, followed by the Paralympic Winter Games between March 12 and 21.
