the infrastructural failings
This unverified video that shows a cat destroying the ceiling of Adler Arena in October 2013, months before the games started. While we can’t say for sure this is the same building, comparing the video to the official Sochi Olympics images of the arena shows some similarities that lead us to believe it could be real. Look at the green couches! Do you all have additional images or information that can corroborate or refute this video’s validity?
The cat appears to be fine and runs away from the scene unscathed, thankfully. And the building was clearly repaired in time for the games. Still, if you thought the Sochi toilets were bad, they’ve got nothing on the ceilings.
