Finnish skier Katri Lylynperä, on Feb.10, shared some short stories on Instagram about the condition of her room in the Olympic Village. 

The footage demonstrated water leakage from the ceiling lights, flooding the floor.

One of the videos featured on Lylynperä’s Instagram page was captioned with the word “Help.” There was also the scene of Olympic staff in protective clothing coming to clean the leakage. 

Foxsports reported that Chinese authorities later approached the Finnish athlete and told her to delete the materials.

Complaints from participants about the living conditions in the Winter Olympic Bubble have swarmed up over the past week. Many of them are related to poor food quality.

For example, The New York Post reported that German Alpine skiing coach Christian Schwaiger said the amount of food offered to players was insufficient for high-performance.

Schwaiger said, “The catering is extremely questionable because really it’s not catering at all. There are no hot meals.”

Russian athlete Valeria Vasnetsova complained in a deleted post about the COVID-19 quarantine in China that “I’ve been getting this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for five days now. I’ve lost a lot of weight and my bones are sticking out. I can’t eat anything else, I don’t know anything about my corona tests.”
