The athlete’s village Rio de Janeiro has started welcoming the athletes on Sunday with a huge number of air conditioning and condoms allocated in each and every bedroom. The latest apartments which are built for hosting 6,000 coaches and 11,000 athletes at the time of the Rio Olympic Games are being known to be called as basic or still austere. But, after stepping out of the balcony of the apartments, the entire complex with its tennis courts, swimming pools and bike lanes looks to be five-star.
The founder of the RSG events - Paul Ramler has told that, that athletes will be having everything they wish for at the time of the Olympic Games.

The organizers in the local area were describing the 31 17 story towers as "city within a city" which is full with a all the time cafeteria, florist and beauty salon.
