Olympic rowers Shaun Kirkham and Michael Brake filmed themselves testing out the sturdiness of the cardboard beds at the Olympic village in Tokyo, Japan, amid claims the beds were “anti-sex.”

The New Zealand Team shared this footage showing a bed bending as Kirkham sat down on it. Brake, who recorded the video, said, “tell me you’re in the Olympic village without telling me you’re in the Olympic village”.

Other Olympic athletes took to social media to debunk the claim, sharing videos of themselves jumping on the beds without causing damage. The official Olympics Twitter account thanked Irish Gymnast Rhys McClenaghan for, “for debunking the myth.” Credit: Michael Brake via Storyful
