...according to The Guardian, 19 of the 31 apartment towers (all of which are 17 stories tall) that comprise the Village have not passed safety tests.

Stress tests were never completed on most of the buildings because of delays in the connection of gas and electric lines. An Olympics spokesperson tried to claim only five percent of the rooms were impacted; she later admitted that less than half of towers have been approved for occupation.

The Italian team has come up with a rather creative solution to their uncompleted rooms, and have contracted out workers on their own to finish up construction.

So they'll be docked floating on the raw sewage with the drug-resistant flesh eating bacteria stuff or will they sail out whenever they can? That dock can't smell good.

smashing world records, leading wire to wire with no pacers and running 1:40 flat. absolutely insane. that is like a 3:40 mile

one of the best performances ever on the track. maybe #1

so sick how he just leaves the field on the back straight of the 2nd lap

Amos sets the world junior record in this race as well at 18 years old running 1:41:73!! (gets 2nd)

Some of the stories are getting a little overdone. Plenty of actual serious problems to discuss without USA Today just wrote an article claiming Brazil maybe the most dangerous place in THE WORLD for gay athletes. Hell its not even among the worst in South America and has a thriving and large gay community.

He's probably still posting from whatever compound he's currently being held at after that world cup trip. Need a code so he can freely communicate with us.
