The London 2012 Olympics have attracted more than 2 million spectators over the first three days of sporting competitions, organizers said Tuesday.
Around 856,000 fans, including football crowds and an estimated 500,000 people who lined London streets for the cycle road race, turned out on Saturday.
On Sunday, organizers counted a further 900,000 spectators at venues, and 370,000 on Monday, organizing committee LOCOG said.
Commenting on the issue of empty seats, a spokeswoman said a further 3,800 tickets had been released to the public late Monday from unused allocations made to sports organizations, athletes and the media. They had all been snapped up by early Tuesday.
