With a record number of condoms allocated and air-conditioners in every bedroom, Rio’s athletes village starts welcoming Olympians on Sunday.
The new apartment towers built to house 11,000 athletes and 6,000 coaches during Rio’s Games are being called basic, even austere.
“The athletes are going to have everything they could possibly wish for during the Games,” said Paul Ramler, founder of RSG events, which has been supplying furniture for athletes’ villages since Sydney 2000.
According to Ramler, the apartments are equipped with 13,000 toilet seats, 275,000 clothes hangers and 18,500 beds that can be extended in length for taller athletes.
The spartan bathrooms sport plastic shower curtains and a single oval mirror, but no drawers or cupboards to store the 450,000 condoms that will be distributed to athletes — equivalent to 42 per person.
“I guess they’re going stick those in the bedside tables,” Ramler said.
