Sochi Olympic Problems

Should We Be Worried About the Olympics? Probably

Sochi seems like a hot mess — or should we say a moderately cold mess? The Russian Olympic host city is still preparing for the Winter games, and we're starting to get worried about Friday's opening ceremony. After all, it's a huge logistical production, and some hotels in the city don't even have lobbies! Journalists and athletes are arriving in the Black Sea resort town and sharing snaps on social media. It doesn't bode well that #SochiToilets are popular hashtags. Putting aside very serious concerns like terrorist threats and human rights violations, here are reasons we're worried Sochi just might not get its act together.

The Toilets

Could a weak sewage system explain Russia's ban on providing American athletes with Greek yogurt, a known digestive aid?! (The ban is real.)

Team bonding?

The Water

The Hotels

The Pillow Shortage

This apparently reads: "ATTENTION, DEAR COLLEAGUES! Due to an extreme shortage of pillows for athletes who unexpectedly arrived to Olympic Village in the mountains, there will be a transfer of pillows from all apartments to the storehouse on 2 February 2014. Please be understanding. We have to help the athletes out of this bind."
