Media Tweets and Images From Sochi May Be More Entertaining Than Actual Olympics

Categories: Sports

Hilarious Twitter feed keeps track of wild issues plaguing visitors to the Olympics.
Russia allegedly spent more than $50 billion for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, the most ever spent to prepare for the Olympics. Yet the reports from the site of the games are not exactly what you call favorable. It has mostly been the media that is sending back reports of all sorts of things most westerners take for granted, like the ability to flush toilet paper or doorknobs, but of course they arrived earlier than most and like to complain.

While some "problems" may fall into the ugly American (or Brit) category, many of them are legitimate gripes, particularly when rooms booked months in advance at hotels charging fairly steep rates are in such disrepair. Here are some of my favorite issues, most of which have been chronicled on Twitter under the @SochiProblems account name.

Inability to Flush Toilet Paper

Missing or Non-Functional Toilets

Makes you wonder where all that money went. I guess the infamous Russian Mob has been doing well with construction contracts.
