Japan hopes to welcome hundreds of athletes to the Olympic Games next summer. Where will they stay? What will their beds be like?
Frames are what the mattress sits on. They will be cardboard! They will be recycled when the games are over.
READ MORE: Athletes Village in Tokyo will have 18,000 beds. The cardboard frames can hold 440 pounds. No athlete will weigh that much. But the village’s manager says, “Of course wood and cardboard would each break if you jumped on them.” Japan’s people come up with good ideas. The mattresses are even recyclable. And the Athletes Village apartments will be sold or rented after the games. Both Olympics planners and athletes show us what Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.”
