(AP) Sochi Olympic organizers say more than 80 percent of tickets to events have been sold.


Russian spectators, who were allocated 70 percent of the total available, have faced lengthy lines in Sochi to collect their tickets.


Ticket collection points are operating at the airport, at railway stations in downtown Sochi and at the Olympic Park in the borough of Adler. Tickets can also be collected in Moscow.


Adler resident Oksana Yeguryan says she waited for four hours to collect a hard copy of her 20,000-ruble ($578) ticket for the opening ceremony.


Sergey Galkin came from Yekaterinburg in the Ural mountains to pick up 50,000 rubles ($1,444) worth of biathlon, ski jumping and luge tickets.
