My thought

This Olympic has already been deeply damaged from the pandemic. This is very upsetting news. Nobody wants to be locked up at a place, we all want to go out and enjoy. But other athletes are at least following the rules, respecting the rules. Just shame to hear this kind of behavior and conducts.
