VIDEO: Athletes post footage of Olympic village to show the absolute state of the place
It's not even finished...
The Rio Olympics is already shrouded in controversy prior to the opening ceremony as doubts remain over the safety of the Olympic village and some athletic areas.
Athletes have shared videos of their accommodation in the village to show how poorly prepared it was for their arrival.
The footage captured here was reportedly taken by the Jamaican Olympic team when they arrived at their accommodation earlier this week and you can see that workers are still building in their dorm while they''re supposed to be living there.

You can see cables and rubble all over the dorm, and large parts of it are yet to be completed.
Athletes train their whole lives for a chance to compete at the Olympics and they deserve better than to be greeted with this scene when they arrive where they're supposed to live for the next couple of weeks.
Let's hope that the rest of the accommodation is in a better way...
