The Australian Olympic team are in Rio de Janeiro ahead of the tournament that officially begins on Friday 5 with the opening ceremony. They are one of 12 countries who have qualified for the men's basketball competition and will be hoping they can spring a surprise or two in their pursuit of a podium finish.
Led by the title-winning trio of Andrew Bogut, Matthew Dellavedova and Patty Mills, the Boomers will be quietly confident of making a splash in the competition.
Having arrived in South America and the Olympic Village, the former Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers pair of Bogut and Dellavedova have been sharing some images of their surroundings, and the accommodation is as bad as we imagined.
There have been a number of concerns about the competition in Rio and, upon arrival, the Australian Olympic team refused to move into the village due to its lacklustre conditions. However, they have since changed that decision and have settled in, although the images shared by Bogut and Delly look more like cheap standard university halls as opposed to Olympic-level living.
Delly, who has recently signed a four-year, $38 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, is sharing a room with teammate Ryan Broekhoff and the two single beds crammed into a box room leaves little room to maneuver for two players who stand at least 6'4" tall.
Bogut, who has himself moved on to pastures new with a move to the Dallas Mavericks, has been very vocal on Twitter, criticising the conditions and using the hashtag #IOCLuxuryLodging. He posted a picture of himself creating a shower curtain as to 'not flood the place' and has not held back in his displeasure.
He took a thinly veiled swipe at the Australian delegates who are staying in 'penthouse villas in downtown Rio' while the athletes remain in conditions that certainly leave a lot to be desired.
