Rio Olympic Medals Are Falling Apart

More than 100 medals won at the Rio Olympics last year have been returned to organizers because they are suffering from defects, according to reports. Brazil faced plenty of negative coverage over the conditions of the Olympic village, with the International Olympic Committee calling the Rio Olympics preparations the worst they had ever seen.

Let’s see how Twitter reacted to this news.

 

Apparently Brazil tried to cut all sorts of corners in an attempt to cut down costs for hosting the Olympics. I wonder how they found out the medals were defective. Were the athletes showering with them and after they got out of the shower they noticed a green circle on their chest? I guess they just don't make things the way they used to.
