Olympic bathroom stall with two toilets raises eyebrows

SOCHI, Russia, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- A photo of two toilets side by side in a Sochi Olympics bathroom stall is causing a stir, with an opposition leader calling it an example of mismanaged funds.

The photo of two toilets in a men's bathroom stall at the Olympic Biathlon Center, which went viral after being posted to Twitter by a BBC correspondent, led social media users to joke about officials spending too much money on toilets and not enough on stall partitions, the Moscow Times reported Thursday.

The photo of the toilets indicates the possibility of an even more awkward situation, as the stall's sole roll of toilet paper is only within reach of one of the commodes.

Opposition leader Alexei Navalny said the picture serves as evidence of the government mismanaging much of the $50 billion budget for the upcoming Olympics.
