In a Twitter thread made by Rio Olympics silver medallist in 5000 metres Paul Chelimo, he shared photos of his bed and then joked about the bizarre sleeping setup claiming it is aimed at preventing intimacy among athletes.
“Beds will be able to withstand the weight of a single person to avoid situations beyond sports. I see no problem for distance runners, even 4 of us can do,” he wrote while sharing a picture of the beds.
