Canadian men’s hockey players might as well sleep in same bed at Olympics
When my roommate and I first moved into our college dorm room freshman year, we had no idea how all of our stuff was going to fit. After seeing some of the sleeping arrangements for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, I now feel like we were fortunate to have as much space as we did.
On Tuesday morning, Stephen Whyno of The Canadian Press was given a tour of one of the rooms the Canadian men’s hockey team will be staying in. As you can see, it features three twin-sized (barely) beds that have roughly three feet of space separating them. Remember, there will be grown men — some of them very large — living in these rooms for almost a month.
Russian journalist Pavel Lysenkov was given a tour of one of the Russian team’s rooms, and it was not much larger. Although, there were only two beds.
On the bright side, the athletes won’t have to worry about not having air conditioning in their dorms and sweating it out like many did in London. They will, however, have to worry about falling out of their bed and into their neighbor’s.
