Australian Olympians robbed during fire in Olympic village

New, comment

If you thought the Olympics couldn't get any worse for the Australians before even starting, you were wrong. They've now been robbed.

After a literal dumpster fire reportedly broke out, the Olympians were evacuated. No one was hurt in the fire, even though the fire alarms didn't work. When they returned to their rooms, however, they discovered that multiple laptops as well as some other belongings had been stolen.

The village had been protected by security guards, but the Australian Olympic Committee have decided to have even more assigned to their building.

This should be fine though. I mean, the Olympics are only a week away.
