Olympic-Size Markups

As Olympics fever starts to infect London, prices on the secondary market for sold-out events are hitting new highs.

Some tickets for the last session of the Men's 400 Meter Medley Relay, for example, are fetching a premium of more than 2,000 percent over face value.

TiqIQ, a online ticket market aggregator, gathered prices from ticket inventory listed on the most liquid secondary market websites. (TiqIQ doesn't sell Olympic tickets due to restrictions by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games.) Prices shown are the least- and most-expensive tickets available as of June 8.
