Millions of people tune in to watch the Olympics each year. But most people watching at home have no idea what goes on at Olympic Village. While traveling to an exotic country to perform in the Olympics may seem like a dream come true, some athletes are met with unsafe accommodations while also being advised to use protection during their extracurricular activities. Here is a behind the scenes look at the bizarre happenings in the Olympic Village in Rio.
15. Uninhabitable Rooms at Olympic Village
According to Team Australia, the rooms being offered at Olympic Village were so bad they refused to move in. Aussie athletes complained of blocked toilets, leaking pipes, exposed wiring, dirty floors in need of massive cleaning and dark stairwells with no lighting. Athletes from other countries complained of similar problems but still moved in anyway. Team Australia stayed at nearby hotels until their rooms were attended to.
