Accomodations for the media at Rio Olympics include unfinished rooms and absurdly long food lines

A few days after reports that the Olympic Village for athletes was at least, in part, “uninhabitable,” we now get news that things aren’t much better over at the media village.

Jeff McTainsh, a reporter for New Zealand Newshub, posted a video showing that there is no shower head in his bathroom. Incredibly, the shower still works, kinda. The water shoots out a hole in the wall.

Here is the video via the UK Daily Mail:



Not only is that almost certainly going to lead to water damage inside the wall and under the shower, but it apparently also leaves water everywhere in the apartment.

McTainsh also posted these images to his Twitter account.

Meanwhile, Aaron Bauer of Around the Rings posted this photo of a food line at the media center in Rio, and blaming the length of the line on limited eating options. 

Bauer later blamed the lack of food options on budget cuts, but it is not clear if that was just speculation or based on information he had been told.
