LONDON (AP)

Thousands of people across Britain rose at dawn and hunched over their computer keyboards in the second round of bidding for tickets for the 2012 London Olympics.

But the hopes of many were dashed. The site was working - but very slowly. Olympic organizers urged ticket hopefuls to be patient.

The sales on Friday came after two-thirds of ticket seekers failed to earn any in the first round. The 1.2 million previously unsuccessful bidders received priority in the morning sales. About 2.3 million tickets went on sale, many of them for football.

Tickets will also be sold in stages next year.
