Big to-do over Olympic loo-loo

Twin Toilets, No. 2.

Side-by-side toilets, nicknamed loo-loo, in a men's bathroom caused a social media sensation last month when they were discovered at the biathlon venue for the Sochi Olympics, swiftly becoming a national joke in Russia.

Now, another privy without privacy has been found - right under the noses of the media.

The Associated Press found the toilets built for two in a lavatory for female staff and volunteers conducting security checks of journalists at the new Main Media Center.

The Sochi organizing committee initially denied knowledge of the second twin toilet, and later refused to comment. That leaves unknown whether the loo-loo was built by design or resulted from an error during the plumbing process.

Unlike the biathlon centre, which had only one toilet paper dispenser, the facilities at the media centre have separate rolls for each user.
