Two toilets, one stall at Sochi Olympic venue

Posted: Updated:

Olympic visitors might think twice about using the restrooms at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

A BBC reporter snapped a photo of a single stall equipped with two toilets at the Olympic Biathlon Center.

Making things worse for the poor spectators who need to use the facilities, a lone toilet paper dispenser doesn't appear to be within reaching distance of either toilet.

Media outlets are seizing on the photo as a symbol of the alleged corruption involved in the construction of Olympic facilities in Russia. The nation spent about $50 billion, reportedly, on Olympic-related construction – making it the most expensive Olympic games in history.

The Winter Olympics are Feb. 7-23.
