Earlier, American sprinter Paul Chelimo claimed that the 'Beds can only bear the weight of one person so that activities outside sports can be avoided.'
The Tokyo Olympics games are just around the corner. Meanwhile, a special kind of bed is garnering a lot of attention before the start of the games.
These are being called anti-sex beds. It has been prepared with the aim of getting the players to follow the social distancing rules during the Olympics.
Sexual relations have also been a topic of discussion in the Olympic Games and efforts are made to stop it, condoms are also distributed for this, but this time special kind of beds have been prepared by the organizers. These beds are said to be very light and are made from cardboard.
It is being said that the purpose of making this is that these beds will not be able to carry much weight, people are interpreting it according to their own, while it is also being considered as an exercise to protect against corona infection.
This came to light in a tweet by American sprinter Paul Chelimo. He wrote that the cardboard beds are made to prevent intimate relationships between athletes. He wrote, 'Beds can only bear the weight of one person so that activities outside sports can be avoided.'
