Many athletes are already complaining about the Olympic Village just ahead of the Opening Ceremony on Friday night. The athletes are saying that there is a lack of air conditioning in the dorm rooms.
Except the British ones.
The British dorms are the only ones that have air conditioning while the athletes from other countries have to resort to using fans.
American hurdler Lolo Jones tweeted, "No air conditioners. Its HOT in the rooms. No need to practice, just lay in ur bed & sweat. Where r the applications for the Winter Olympics??"
Even the Aquatics Centre is having issues with the AC. The temperature inside the Aquatics Centre reached 85 degrees, the same temperature outside the building.
There are major concerns that the water will not cool down to the regulation 79.7 degrees and it is worrying some coaches.
Not a good omen for the London Games.

Lolo Jones has become increasingly popular over the past few months and it’s not hard to see why. The 29-year-old hurdler will be in her second Olympics, after finishing a disappointing seventh-place finish in 2008 at Beijing. Jones was pulling away from the pack four years ago when she clipped the ninth hurdle and fell.
Jones has also blown up on Twitter, especially after her...
Lolo Jones has carved out a nice little niche for herself in the seemingly never-ending litany of outside-the-lines anecdotal stories about the athletes competing in the upcoming London Olympics. Of course, her performance in competition is stellar enough on its own, but her talking about her virginity and perhaps even more so, how she’d be [...]
Leading up to the London Olympics, Lolo Jones‘ virginity was one of the most widely discussed story lines, because apparently these are the things that matter these days.
While Jones undoubtedly continues to carry the reputation of being “That Virgin Athlete Not Named Tim Tebow,” she still has her share of admirers, particularly the New York Jets on behalf of Tebow. So far...
Unless you’re a professional athlete, Lolo Jones is probably faster, stronger and more athletic than you. Those aren’t qualities that are for everyone. I personally don’t have a “type.” My “type” is hot. I like skinny girls and curvy girls, blondes and brunettes, tits and asses. As long as a girl looks good, they’re my
The Olympic Village is some posh digs for most of the athletes at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London but for most of the NBA players, it isn't exactly what they are used to.Check out Tyson Chandler attempting to fit in the bed on USA sprinter LoLo Jones: Here are some other pictures of LoLo hanging out with team USA:(Courtesy of Larry Brown Sports and Diehard Sports)
Olympic Hurdler Lolo Jones uploaded a picture of Tyson Chandler trying out her bed in the Olympic Village today. Apparently, the bed is a tad small for the 7’1 center.
Lolo Jones has yet to find love. Because of her unique situation, there seem to be more people interested in Jones’ personal life than there are those who are wondering what her chances are of winning a gold medal in London. Since she admitted she is a virgin, everyone is adamant about recommending potential partners for Lolo and finding out how she has managed to hold out for...
On Thursday, Lolo Jones was complaining about the air condition situation in her Olympic Village bedroom. Apparently, that was an invite for hoops star Tyson Chandler, who was spotted in Jones' bedroom on Friday. Jones, who also tweeted out a photo with LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul, took a picture of Chandler in her bed, which can be seen below. Ok, so run this by...
Things are heating up in London, but two of the most popular American Olympic athletes aren't very thrilled about it. According to Lolo Jones and Alex Morgan, the Olympic village bedrooms do not have air conditioning. Either that, or the units are broken, as seen in the tweets below. No air conditioners. Its HOT in the rooms. No need to practice, just lay in ur bed & sweat...

Lolo Jones is always on the hunt for the man of her dreams. In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Lolo — who emphasized that she’s single by choice — admitted that she gets tired of people on Twitter asking why she’s not dating anyone….so maybe one of these fine young men can fill the void for the self proclaimed virgin...
One of the issues for athletes that have to sleep in the Olympic Village is the size of the beds. The beds that have been provided in the dormitories in London are best suited for children and jockeys. Don’t believe us? Have a look at them for yourself. If you are more than 5-foot-8, you probably are going to struggle to get a solid night’s sleep in an Olympic Village bed. That...
