In what is becoming an Olympic tradition, the housing conditions for athletes and media in Rio are abysmal. Andrew Bogut of the Dallas Mavericks is there to represent Australia and he is chronicling his lodging. As you can see, it’s not very good.
If you’re the slightest bit over 6 feet tall, you know how hard it is to sleep in some hotel beds. Now imagine being 7 feet tall and being asked to sleep in a bed that’s probably around the same size as the ones they have in prison. It really makes you wonder where all the money goes when Olympic cities get to host the games.
Oh, right. That’s where it goes.
If the beds and showers aren’t something the IOC cares about, maybe they are deeply invested in where all the athlete urine goes.
Instructional signs on how to tinkle into a urinal aren’t cheap. There are probably people from some countries where it is encouraged to urinate from distance. I bet there are Steph Currys of peeing that try to hit the urinal from the sink just for the sport of it. My guess is it’s the French.
Bogut plans to keep updating the world on the nightmare that is Rio with the hashtag #IOCLuxuryLodging, at least until he attracts some ailment from the water that results in his immediate blindness and loss of his fingers.
