Those in charge of Great Britain’s Olympic team did something nice and provide luggage for their athletes as they stayed in Rio for the Summer Olympics. There was just one problem.

Yeah, while it was probably more cost effective to get every bag in the same color, it proved to be an issue when the Great Britain athletes all arrived and saw hundreds of red bags sprawled out on the floor of Heathrow Airport. The athletes, knowing that after taking a trans-atlantic flight wasn’t tiring enough that they now have to search for their luggage, tried to joke about it to make the best of the situation.

While it probably took a while for every athlete to be paired with their luggage, hopefully with all the red bags with “Team GB” on them, none of them got on a different flight and thus inevitably found their owner.
