Olympian says worst part of scrutinized Rio Olympic Village is no 'Pokemon Go'
Leaky pipes and electrical shorts are secondary to catching Pokemon
There has been no shortage of complaints about the athletes village at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Most countries' athletes are complaining about the unlivable rooms full of leaking plumbing and electrical shorts. Australia even refused to let their more than 700 athletes and staff stay in the dorms until improvements have been made.
That's of no concern to American diver Abby Johnston, though. She just wants to catch Pokemon.
Want to know the worst thing about the Olympic village? No @PokemonGoApp. Otherwise, it's incredible.— Abby Johnston (@AbbyLJohnston) July 26, 2016
Johnston isn't the only athlete to complain about the absence of Pokemon Go, the world's favorite mobile game. Olympians like French canoeist Matthieu Peche have also voiced their concern.
A couple weeks ago, Rio de Janeiro mayor Eduardo Paes pleaded with Nintendo to bring the game to Brazil in time for the Olympics.
Looks like there are about 10 days left for his prayers to be answered.
