Over 150,000 applications have been processed since Friday for around 850,000 tickets. Just under 90% received tickets, subject to payment.
Around 60% of request applications were submitted in the first two hours and during that time 10 sports sold out, some within 15 minutes.
This massive demand meant around 10% have not been successful in this round and the London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) will do everything it can to get them to the Games.
24 sports were in the second round sale, 18 of which were sold out by Friday evening. Boxing and Weightlifting joined the 'sold out' list yesterday. Football, Volleyball, Wrestling - Greco-Roman and Wrestling – Freestyle remain for sale.
Commenting on the second sale, Chair of LOCOG, Sebastian Coe said:
'Over 130,000 more people will now have tickets to the Games following the first day of the 'second chance sale' on Friday. We know there is still some disappointment from those who were not successful in their requests but we will continue do everything we can to get them to the Games.
'Over a million new tickets will be offered to the British public next year from contingency seats, once venues are tested and licensed, and we aim to get as many of these tickets as possible into the hands of customers who have missed out to date.'
