The Jamaican Olympic delegation moved into the athletes' village today after participating in the mandatory training camp. Watts, who manages the 63-member Jamaican team added that the air-conditioned rooms are "not like what you see in a hotel".


"(In) each little block you have four people. A living room, a common area and then two rooms on each side. So we have four beds in each little sector," he said.

Watts said his team will have to work to ensure a smooth period for the athletes because it's not a "perfect situation" in terms of the number of beds.
