“The claim that Olympics security personnel are being forced to pay for a shower is incorrect. The personnel affected by this were a small number of advance logistic enablers, whose job was to make the site fit for occupation by others by, for example, installing showers.
"Any costs incurred will be reimbursed in the usual fashion.”
