There are the lucky ones who actually made it to London to watch the World Games, and those who never left the couch in front of their TV screen.
But, both can own a piece of the pie, so-to-speak. That’s because over one million items from the athletes’ village and Olympic Park are being auctioned off.
Think of the possibilities: You could own the same lamp that Michael Phelps used the night before he won gold. Or, the chairs Misty-May Treanor and Kerri Walsh sat in before their last Olympic Games together.
From nightstands ($30), to bean bags ($23.50) and beds, you can purchase it on the British website Remains of the Games.
Want to feel like a volunteer empire? The 199 pound blue-and-pink umpire chair used by crowd control at the Games can be yours for $312.
No matter what you purchase, the item is guaranteed to have been used in some way in the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. A sticker on the item will certify it. It reads, “This product was proudly made and supplied to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”
How awesome would it be to have a dinner party and tell your friends the chairs they are sitting on were once used by Olympians from the 2012 Games? Check out the website for your piece of the “Olympic presence.”
