For those still looking to get tickets for the Olympics (including some fencing ones) there are a few back on sale through Sports World: https://london2012.sportsworld.co.uk/index.php who seem legtimate and are the resllers for some of the EU countries.
They came on sale this morning and a probably limited. I tried to buy tickets from them before (in the first wave of ticket sales) and they take your money before allocating your tickets, but in fairness they also refunded me fully for the tickets they couldn't allocate so they seem ok.

They are on the list of approved resellers. I got some athletics tickets through them in the last round but they were unable to get me the fencing tickets that I was after. They did refund my money within a reasonable time however.

Real pain having to go down in person to collect the tickets, as they will not post them and on a specific day!!!.

To get tickets seems to be really impossible. At least for me! I always miss my chance, because of work, because of not having internet all the time. I'm too slow! Does someone here get the chance to see the Olympics 2012 in London? This must be an awesome and unique experience! And London is my favorite city on the world :)

Thanks Gary

The fencing trivia from the web site is quite good!

•After the Paris 1924 Games, the Italian and Hungarian teams settled a scoring controversy with a real-life duel.
•French has been the language of Fencing since 1570 when Henri Saint-Didier, a pioneer of the sport, came up with most of the terms for the moves that Fencers still use today.
•Hungarian Fencer Aladar Gerevich holds the record for the longest gap between Olympic medals. He first won gold at the Los Angeles 1932 Games, but waited 28 years for his second success.
•Originally, there was no time limit for a Fencing contest. This was changed after one match lasted seven hours in the 1930s.
•The Fencing ‘piste’ is designed to look like a castle hallway – the setting for many real sword fights in medieval times.
