Rio Olympic Village

Australia refused to move their athletes into the Rio Olympic Village because of concerns about the state of their accommodation.

Australian staffs are in nearby hotels with the first athletes due on Monday.

Chiller, the head of Australia's Olympic delegation, said extra maintenance staff and more than 1,000 cleaners have been engaged to fix the problems but the faults, particularly the plumbing issues, have not been resolved.

She said in a statement on the Australian Olympic website: "Due to a variety of problems in the Village, including gas, electricity and plumbing, I have decided that no Australian team member will move into our allocated building.

Problems include blocked toilets, leaking pipes, exposed wiring, darkened stairwells where no lighting has been installed and dirty floors in need of a massive clean."

The British team had staff in place for several days and a spokesman told Reuters: "We are confident that our accommodation is ready to receive athletes and will be to the highest standards within the village.         

The 31-building village will house 18,000 athletes and officials at the height of the Games, which start on 5 August.

Rhycom Nonwoven Products Co., LTD hopes all the athletes will get good grades.
