Concerns about disease, sanitation, violence and even more have formed controversies in the weeks approaching the start of the Summer Olympics, but perhaps none of them is as severe as the plight of the millennial.
Team USA gymnasts Simone Biles and Laurie Hernandez, rooming together at the upcoming Rio Games, are both understandably excited about their first ever Olympics appearances. But as this video posted to Biles' Snapchat account on Wednesday shows, there is a bit of a problem for the two inside the Olympic Village:
As Hernandez' emotional reaction makes clear, the lack of electrical outlets could form a pretty significant hindrance to the social media presences of the 19-year-old Biles and herself, the U.S. youngest Olympian in any sport at age 16.
Sure, this might seem like a minor issue for veterans like 22-year-old team "Grandma" Aly Raisman, but Biles and Hernandez might have their hands full with more than just their upcoming opponents over the next few weeks.
What's the solution? Piles and piles of extension cords seem to be the only easy answer. That said, if this year's Team USA gymnasts manage to repeat the gold medal performance from the 2012 "Fierce Five," they'll have no trouble filling up the nation's social media feeds even without their own Internet access.
