LONDON (AP) - The London Olympics may be over, but it's not too late to take home a national flag from the athletes' parade or a used javelin. Officials have put hundreds of Olympic relics up for auction, with a 1948 London Olympic torch forged from aluminum going for 14,000 pounds (US$21,970). Among the stranger items on auction are a farmer's hand-sickle, a Mary Poppins costume and a suffragette protest banner, all used in the July 27 opening ceremony directed by filmmaker Danny Boyle. Also for sale are used equipment from the competitions, including a javelin that's selling at just over 2,000 pounds on Tuesday. The sales of the items will go toward covering the costs of the games.
