Bogut goes viral with #IOCLuxuryLodging tweets
We've seen comments from Andrew Bogut and Aleks Maric previously on the state of the Olympic Village lodgings, and it looks like things have not quite settled down for the Boomers as yet.
Bogut injected more humour into the state of their rooms with a timeless caption (and hashtag) that instantly went viral, sending waves throughout social media.
We call it: part-time baller, full-time handyman.
Matthew Dellavedova also had a picture on his Instagram account with roommate Ryan Broekhoff, that showed them seated in what looked like a particularly narrow room with two single beds.
In saying that, American decathlete Ashton Eaton posted a video of his lodgings to Twitter, and showed it to be decent, if nothing else.
In response to a question on how basketballers --who are obviously taller than most-- would fit into the single beds, Bogut let loose this gem. Sarcasm at its finest.
Australian Olympic team mission chief Kitty Chiller was quoted on ESPN about Bogut's bed size, confirming the big man is well sorted out. "He's got a big bed with a nice big mosquito net. He's like a princess in there."
The news cycle just does not settle down when it comes to the Australian Olympics team. The team have also had a laptop and Zika-protective team shirts stolen last weekend, when a fire evacuation forced about 100 team members to exit the building.
Let us hope that things quieten down, and that the focus will be on the games and nothing else.
