SOCHI, Russia — As evidenced by a tweet from BBC reporter Steve Rosenberg, bathroom trips at the 2014 Winter Olympics will be quite cramped.

According to Bleacher Report, Rosenberg was at the Laura Cross-Country Ski & Biathlon Centre when he took this photo in the men’s bathroom.

“As if the Russians didn’t have enough problems as the Olympics approach Feb. 7, fending off talk of terrorism, defending themselves against accusations of homophobia, denying any corruption was involved in the $51 billion construction project,” wrote Kathy Lally in the Washington Post. “Now they’ve got a toilet problem. No, not a scarcity of toilets – too many of them. At least too many in one stall.”
