London Olympics 2012: Toilet trouble at Games VillageLondon: Transport and security woes came visiting the London Olympics organisers in ample measure ahead of the greatest sporting show on earth, forcing the athletes to experience a different kind of trouble at the Games Village here.

Sharing of a toilet among four spokespersons, and sometimes even by six athletes, is causing strain and forcing some of them to alter their morning schedules so as to manage essential routines.

"It`s amazing that competitors have to get used to these sort of things at the biggest event of the world. This may just be design issue for the flats, but the athletes are getting quite stressed," said an Indian official who is part of the delegation staying at the Games Village.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said tempers had not frayed until now, but if an athlete spends extra time in the toilet, he tends to get glared at by others sharing the apartment.


Two others in the Indian contingent - a boxer and a shooter - confirmed that the toilet time was the first thing athletes got to discuss after checking into the Games Village.

"You can`t just order a different flat with an extra toilet, so we have to deal with what is available. But come competition time, and this could become a serious matter," said the Indian shooter, preferring not to identified.

The boxer, who had also competed in the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, said in retrospect the facilities inside the apartment in the 2010 Games Village seemed much better.

"So many sportsmen did not have to line up to use the toilet in any of the apartments in the Commonwealth Games Village," he said.
