Sochi Olympics 2014: Athlete Accommodations or Cheap College Dorm?

Sochi Olympics 2014: Athlete Accommodations or Cheap College Dorm?

The 2014 Winter Olympics will have the eyes of the world in only 3 short days. Athletes from 88 different countries will be leaving blood, sweat and tears behind to try and get themselves a spot on the podium as they chase gold medals and their spot in the history books. These are the worlds best athletes and, as John Tavares has put it, the ultimate goal of any athlete is to participate in the Olympics.

And participate they will. But probably on sore backs and less than perfect sleeps.

Or, at least the Canadain Men’s Hockey team will be. Check out these world class bedrooms for the reigning Olympic gold medalists.

Now, no one is going to mistake me for an Olympic athlete. I didn’t compete in Vancouver, London or Beijing. I’ve never been inside the Athlete’s Village. So I can’t say this with 100% certainty, but I have a feeling that the athletes weren’t sleeping on single beds with sheets made of the same design the dentist bibs are.

I could be wrong. Maybe those are the most advanced single mattresses on the planet. But even then, the quarters seem a little tight, don’t they?


But ah well, at least they’ll be safe from the packs of wild rabid dogs.
