Although word has spread that Japanese organizers did not accidentally make the beds out of cardboard in the Olympic Village, an Irish gymnast tested the bed and believes he could withstand two people. That is, the manufacturer Airweave was right, which promised that the beds would withstand a weight of 200 kilograms.
Following doubts about the stability of the cartons, Rhys McClenaghan Irish gymnast on Sunday picked up a camera as he bounced on the bed. The New York Post wrote that the beds were deliberately made fragile to promote social distancing.
“The beds are made of cardboard, that’s true. But they are supposed to break it if one suddenly moves on it. Well, that’s not true, ”said McClenaghan, whose strong bounce was well tolerated by the piece of furniture.
The Olympics ’official Twitter page also thanked McClenaghan for clarifying the rumor.
Sustainable beds are stable!

Despite warnings to avoid unnecessary physical contact, organizers are expected to distribute 160,000 condoms to athletes on their way home.
The goal is to take athletes with them to their home countries to help raise awareness about AIDS.
