WATCH: Athletes at Sochi Olympics Are Dealing With Bathrooms Problems

Olympic village’s are not usually the hight of luxury, but the athlete accommodations are generally the place where the host country can give the participants a taste of their hospitality and national flavor. In the 2012 London Olympics, athletes were treated to small, environmentally friends rooms with modern furniture. But, when the athletes saw the video above come out of Russia, they thought it was a joke.

According to Yahoo Sports, each athlete has a twin bed (reportedly larger than the one at the London Olympics), a bedside table, a chair, a lamp, a chair, a wardrobe, and a bath towel.

What is even more disconcerting to Americans in Sochi has been the bathrooms. Visiters to Sochi were concerned to find a note in their bathroom that asked them not to flush toilet paper but to put it in a trash bin. This is an ordinary task for much of the world, but athletes at the Olympics had other expectations. Athletes and spectators were also greeted by the strange sign in their bathroom, which you can see below. The sign appears to warn people not to fish or urinate standing up.
