RIO DE JANEIRO (Sputnik) — The accommodation conditions faced by athletes taking part in the ongoing 2016 Summer Olympics have previously been criticized by a number of athletes as well.
"Indeed, the problem of food exists. In this respect, we are all remembering the Sochi Olympics even if they are now surrounded by a lot of negativity. In terms of organization, the Sochi Games exceeded all other Olympics. The food in the Rio Olympic Village is bad, to put it mildly. The range of dishes is not being renewed. First there were normal metal forks and spoons, then they apparently run out of them and now we get disposable ones," Igor Kazikov told reporters.
The Summer Olympic Games are being held in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro from August 5 until August 21. Brazil is the first South American country to host the competition.
