We've arrived.. Question is. Do I smile and nod or talk about the truth. No recycling of any kind in the village. Construction quality so poor that windows are cracking, river systems being destroyed, fleets of trucks idling for no reason, a plume of exhaust streaming from the Olympic flame. The furthest thing away from sustainability one could ever imagine. 80% of what is built here will never be used again. Best question of the day. "People say this is the "perfect games" what do you think about that"..... #roadtohapiness

  • brodylevenMeans a lot that you're sharing this perspective. Thanks so much. (look: @protectourwinters @athletesforcleanair)
  • athletesforcleanairYes. You're amazing. Thanks for sharing. Highlighting this is so important, and while athletes often get shamed for being 'ungrateful' or outspoken, maybe we would be a bit better off if more athletes spoke out more often? @brodyleven Thanks for the heads up! 👍
