2.1 Million Attend Olympic Events in 3 Days

While there were in-numerous vacant seen daily at the various event venues, a total of 2.1 million spectators visited the competition venues in the first three days of the London Olympics, organizers said Tuesday. The number of daily spectators stood at 856,000 on Saturday, 900,000 on Sunday, and 370,000 on Monday.

Still, there were plenty of vacant seats at some events -- 2,000 in a basketball match between Nigeria and Tunisia, 2,500 at a swimming competition, and 300 in a gymnastics event. 

The organizers had to mobilize soldiers, teachers and schoolchildren to make the ranks look less deserted.
