Wealth of Issues Face 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Athletes, Fans and Journalists

Welcome to the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, where the beds are small, the toilets don't accept toilet paper, the water is yellow and the stray dogs, well, their numbers are dwindling.

As journalists, athletes and fans descend upon Sochiand Krasnaya Polyana, Russia, they are finding various issues that will make life for the next couple of weeks hilarious, treacherous or some small chasm in between.

Deadspin's Tom Ley spotted some rather intriguing tidbits floating around the Internet that highlight how many of the athletes will live and sleep for the duration of the games.

In the end, your hypothetical value motel along the highway comes loaded with far more amenities than the athletes' dormitories.
