Winter Games Athletes Sleeping On Beds Not Made Of Cardboard

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Winter Olympics are officially underway, and they look much different then the Summer Games: fewer nations will be represented at the Winter Games. There will be less than half the athletes. Some local spectators will be allowed.

And, remember the cardboard beds for the Summer Games athletes? The Winter athletes have gotten an upgrade. On Thursday, Team USA snowboarder Shaun White shared a video room tour of his Olympic dorm for the Beijing Winter Games on TikTok. His suite features has a sleeper sofa, a kitchen, a dining area and a king sized bed: a drastic difference from the cardboard beds and desks athletes saw during the Summer Games.

The dorms are upgraded – and we know the performances will be incredible.

Our question of the night: what’s your favorite Winter Olympic sport?
