Several of us (former gymnasts) bought tickets early so that we could have the best view of the competition (duh!!!). Our seats were almost in the center of the FX with a great view of all events. On the other side of the podium was vaulting.
But when we got to the arena, we found out that the FIG had built up a grandstand (for VIP’s?) covering that whole side of the arena.
We had to miss the first part of the competition to go downstairs and get our tickets changed. The tickets we then got were right at the end of the vaulting landing mat.
After much complaining (and missing more of the competition) we were moved to the other end of the arena with a straight on view of HB but, even with binoculars, it was impossible to see most of the moves on PH. …
UPDATE: The seating has been improved for Oct 4th.
On the official media platform, high above the arena, my chair was the only one that could easily see Vault. Most everyone else had to stand.
