Andrew Bogut has snarky quip on 2020 Olympics’ cardboard beds
Apart from ensuring that world-class facilities and amenities are ready for the upcoming 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japanese organizers of the prestigious sporting event are also bracing themselves for the athletes’ infamous extra curricular activities.
According to a report from News18.com, organizers assured that the provided cardboard beds are sturdy enough in the event that some of the athletes use it for sexual-related activities.
In a bid to shake off some off the stress from competing in a high-stakes tournament, Olympic athletes are notorious for partaking in sexual encounters inside the Olympic village. Condoms will also be handed out throughout the tournament.
Shortly after former NBA player and Australian national team men’s basketball standout Andrew Bogut recently warmed organizers about the destruction of the beds in the aftermath of the games, the bed manufacturer Airweave claimed that each bed will be able to hold up to 200kg — roughly the weight of two persons.
“Great gesture… until the athletes finish their said events and the 1000’s of condoms handed out all over the village are put to use,” Andrew Bogut was quoted as saying in the report.
The 2020 Olympics organizers added that each bed will hold up as long as athletes limit their activities to just two persons per bed.
The summer games, meanwhile, is slated to open on July 24 and conclude on August 9. Around 206 nations are expected to battle it out in 339 events, while an estimated 11,091 athletes are expected to partake in the tournament.
With the 2020 Olympics opening inching closer by the day, Tokyo will indeed get busy in the coming months.
