Irish Cyclist Nicolas Roche Catches Pneumonia at Rio Olympics

Nicolas Roche pneumonia

A lot of coverage has been dedicated to the disgusting water at the Rio Olympics, but apparently athletes should also be wary of an appliance in their rooms — the air conditioner!

The Associated Press reported today that Irish cyclist Nicolas Roche contracted bacterial pneumonia during his stay in Rio. He took to Twitter to place some blame on a “bad aircon:”

To make matters worse for Nicolas, he’s going to miss the the Vuelta a Espana race which begins on Aug. 20.

Roche finished 29th in the Olympics Road Race after he dropped a chain.

Suffice it to say, a tough Olympics experience for the Irishman.
