Sturdier than they look


In a bid to prove that the cardboard beds provided at the Olympic Village were not anti-sex, Olympian Ben Wanger put it to test.

Team Israel’s Wanger uploaded a Tik Tok video in which he was seen jumping on the bed with his teammates to test the bed's strength.

The bed broke when nine people jumped at the same time USA Today reported.

The test was carried out to correct a false rumor circulated online this month that the beds were anti-sex and only able to withstand the weight of one person.

Eeek...

But...why?
“Anyone got an extra bed for me?” Wanger captioned the video.

The video has since been taken down.

The cardboard beds have been a hot topic in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics after Olympic runner Paul Chelimo said that the beds are only good for one person.

“Beds to be installed in Tokyo Olympic Village will be made of cardboard, this is aimed at avoiding intimacy among athletes. Beds will be able to withstand the weight of a single person to avoid situations beyond sports,” Chelimo tweeted.

However, the organiser later said that the beds can hold up to 200 kilogrammes.

Here's a video showing one person jumping on the bed is still safe:
