The troubled Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games have arrived at their first major crisis, less than two weeks before the opening ceremony, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.
The Australian Olympic Committee confirmed on Sunday evening that the athletes' village has been deemed uninhabitable in the short term due to significant plumbing and electrical concerns.
It is unclear if and when competitors will be able to move in, with the International Olympic Committee is set to undertake "stress tests" to deal with serious issues with plumbing and fire safety.
"Problems include blocked toilets, leaking pipes, exposed wiring, darkened stairwells where no lighting has been installed and dirty floors in need of a massive clean.
"In operations areas water has come through the ceiling resulting in large puddles on the floor around cabling and wiring," said AOC chef de mission, Kitty Chiller.
