4:53 PM PT — It appears just like the no-sex speculation has (presumably) been debunked … by none aside from an Olympian who’s on the scene, and did just a little in-room check to see how the cardboard holds up below stress.
Irish gymnast, Rhys McClenaghan, posted a video in response to studies the cardboard beds are supposed to dissuade athletes from doing it within the village … and he is calling BS, as a result of the frames can apparently face up to his personal body weight leaping up and down.
Try his demo … the dude hops up and down on his personal cardboard cutout, and the factor stays intact. Fairly attention-grabbing, however we’re not so certain that clears it up. Truth is … two our bodies are heavier than one — even one which’s leaping. Extra testing is probably going wanted. 🤔
The sleeping preparations for the Olympics have surfaced — athletes will crash on bins, restrict 1 per buyer … one thing honchos apparently don’t desire examined with bed room shenanigans.
Try the beds which were arrange all all through the Olympic village in Tokyo, the place world-class athletes will arrive by the top of subsequent week for the beginning of the video games. As you’ll be able to clearly see, these infants are made out of excellent old school cardboard … significantly.
The beds’ frames and modest mattresses are designed by an organization known as Airweave — they usually’ve cranked out upwards of 18,000 for the Olympics. Sure, they’re considerably intricate of their construction and configuring … capable of be adjusted to a person’s liking/contortion.
Nonetheless, a operating idea is that the beds are made this fashion for a cause — particularly, the Worldwide Olympic Committee and different organizers supposedly wish to discourage intercourse amongst athletes … a pastime at the games that is getting pooh-pooh’d this 12 months as a consequence of COVID.
A handful of Olympic athletes — some who’ve already touched down in Tokyo, and others who have not — are testing optimistic for the virus … together with U.S. tennis participant Coco Gauff.
Nonetheless, U.S. monitor and discipline star Paul Chelimo obtained in on the joke, explaining that it was clear to him the Olympic powers that be don’t desire any banging happening … as a result of these beds, theoretically, solely assist the load of 1 individual. NBD for runners, although!!!
He writes, “I see no downside for distance runners,even 4 of us can do😂.” The implication being … runners are gentle, so a few them in all probability would not break the mattress.
There’s additionally the tradition of handing out condoms, which obtained a 2021 asterisk. The Tokyo Olympics Organizing Committee reportedly informed a Japanese outlet the condoms aren’t supposed for use, however introduced again to an athlete’s dwelling nation for secure intercourse training.
In different phrases … preserve it in your pants this time round. That, or danger hitting the ground.
