Rhys McClenaghan hit the Olympic beds … jumping on them.
The Olympic Village is known for hosting the best athletes the world has to offer during the Olympic Games. He’s also known to play at home with a lot of, well, sex, perhaps best reserved for deleted scenes from Stanley Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut.”
This year, a little conspiracy theory has emerged around the beds used by athletes at the Olympic Village: With the frames made of cardboard, Olympians feel they are designed to encourage social distancing, and perceived weight limits. in the beds they only allow for one person.
The beds that will be installed in the Tokyo Olympic Village will be made of cardboard, this aims to avoid intimacy between athletes.
The beds can support the weight of a single person to avoid situations beyond sports.
I don’t see any problem for long-distance runners, even 4 of us can do it😂 pic.twitter.com/J45wlxgtSo

Well, Irish pommel horse Olympian McClenaghan put the beds to the test on Sunday.
“In today’s episode of ‘Fake News at the Olympics,’ the beds are meant to be ‘anti-sex,’ says McClenaghan in a tweeted video.” They are made of cardboard, yes. But apparently they are destined to break at any sudden movement. “
Jump up and down the bed, testing for stability.
“It’s fake. Fake news.”
Bed materials and bed frame are made from reusable materials. After the Olympics, the cardboard will be recycled and the beds will be used to make plastic bottles in an eco-friendly move. That is, if the beds can still be used afterwards.
Airweave, the company that made the beds, said their frames are stable enough to support up to 440 pounds.
“We have carried out experiments, such as dropping weights on the beds,” a company spokesman told AFP. “As long as two people are attached to the bed, they must be strong enough to carry the load.”
In another story twist, condoms will be delivered at the Olympics, but only after the athletes leave Tokyo, not during the Games.
With Tokyo operating under strict coronavirus protocols, there is the question of how athletes will be able to have intercourse during the 2021 Olympics. Where there is a will, there is a way. But for now, consider the Olympic bed myth … debunked.
