British track and field athletes are to be given more tickets so their friends and families can watch them compete at the Olympics.
All Team GB competitors receive two tickets for their first Games appearance through the British Olympic Association.
UK Athletics (UKA) is to pay for two tickets for each round after that in a move that will ensure that track and field athletes can rely on their family support from the first round to the final.
UK Athletics chief executive Niels de Vos said he hopes will help the athletes to focus on their performance.
De Vos said: "This is essentially a performance decision - the last thing we want athletes to be worrying about is the cost or availability of tickets for their mum and dad, boyfriend or girlfriend, husband or wife.
It means that athletes could be in line to receive up to five pairs of tickets across the 20 athletics sessions, including the race walk and marathon, at the Olympics.
Pole vaulter Holly Bleasdale said: "For me, having people close to me there and supporting me is a big boost."
It comes as London 2012 Olympics officials mark 100 days to the opening ceremony.
London 2012 chief executive Paul Deighton said the preparations are proceeding according to plan - being both on time and within budget.
Mr Deighton told the Press Association: "We are absolutely where we want to be with 100 days to go - we are ready to welcome the world to London."
