Canadian bobsledder Heather Moyse takes a hot bath in a trash can


The Sochi Olympics have had plenty of problems when it comes to housing athletes, but you can’t really blame Olympic officials for not having bath tubs. Adults typically take showers. But when Canadian bobsledder Heather Moyse needed a hot bath to relax her muscles over the weekend, she found a way to improvise.

“No bath tubs in the Mountain Village … So just chillin’ in a garbage bin doing a hot Epsom salt ‘bath’!” Moyse wrote on Twitter along with the photo you see above.

Please tell me that was an unused trash bin. A poll from the Toronto Sun revealed that 36% of people would do the same thing Moyse did, compared to 20% who wouldn’t. The other 44% said it would depend on how clean the trash can was.

Did the voters take stuff like Russian officials spying on showers and athletes getting stuck in bathrooms into consideration? That would probably skew the numbers a bit. Maybe Moyse is onto something.
