Olympic Games Beds in Beijing

The good news is that beds will be 10 cm’s wider compared to Athens. Have athletes gotten fatter over the last 4 years?

The bad news is that athletes expecting to spend some relaxing time in their apartment in the Olympic Village watching TV will have to pay extra.

According to International Olympic Committee, organizers are required to provide rooms that are the standard as a three-star hotel.
Besides the wider bed, each room will have a table, a closet and decorative pictures on the wall, but no TV. Televisions will have to be orders and paid for separately.(source: Globe Sports)

In China three-star hotels definitely have a tv so it strikes me as kind of strange not to provide one.

Come to think of it, having no TV but a 10 cm wider bed, there are other options to relax. What else to do than invite someone over. And don’t forget to use the Beijing Olympics Map to let them know where you are.

    That might be the solution for many sporters, except for male cyclists I presume, considering the string of confessions of use of testosteron, EPO, and other dope. Apparently these means steer one to watch television rather than inviting someone over to test the wider bed…..

    I guess no one will be allowed in and out of the Olympic village… without a backhander.

    Before games, you can try to talk with Chinese volunteers to make friends and learn more about Chinese culture on Voice Connecting China
