Why is Olympian bathing in a garbage can?

May 7, 2018by TGaines

Oh, come on. It’s not THAT bad in Sochi, is it?

You might ask yourself that once you see the photo that Canadian bobsledder Heather Moyse posted to Twitter, in which she appears to be taking a bath in a garbage can.

But it’s not what it looks like. Well, not exactly:

You see, women’s bobsled gets underway in Sochi on Tuesday, and it seems Moyse was in need of a pre-event hot Epsom salt bath — a method traditionally used by some athletes looking to treat sore muscles. Unfortunately for Moyse, she needed a bathtub to make it happen, and apparently those are in short supply in the Olympic Village.
