Another day, another major issue with Rio’s Olympic preparations which can’t wait any longer, as the Games officially begin tonight. The Australian rooms were robbed, Jamaica arrived to see that their rooms were still under construction, and today, a Czech cyclist shared this piece of video:

Great we have new shower in the house. 😂😂😂😂

That is one of the stairwells in the Athletes’ Village and it appears as if there is a ton of water rushing down. There shouldn’t be that much water there, but it is Rio…

It also wasn’t raining yesterday in Rio, so a major leak caused the stairwells to be turned into waterfalls better seen in other parts of the country. So, things are not going all that well as the Games begin, and this figures to not be the last story of this ilk coming from the Olympic host city.
