No Fishing Allowed in Olympic Toilets

No Fishing Allowed in Olympic Toilets

Canadian snowboarder Sebastien Toutant arrived in Russia before the Olympic Games to find a list of rules posted in the bathrooms.  Among forbidden activities is fishing. 

While the list of dos and don’ts includes some reasonable tips in aid of promoting good hygiene – not standing up, being sick or squatting above the toilet being used – you might be forgiven for thinking the chart’s designers had ran out of ideas when they got to the last two rules.

In one, a stick man can clearly be seen fishing, with a rod, in the toilet. The reasoning behind this remains unclear – with fishing not included as a sport at the winter games, athletes are unlikely to have brought equipment along with them.
