LONDON — Ah, the peaceful gated serenity of the athletes' Olympic Village, where competitors can relax before their events and O.M.G. FIRE ALARMS!
Said Russian women's basketball player Anna Petrakova on Twitter: "Fire alarm went off in the Olympic dining hall. (Had to evacuate with a plate)."
We'll update when there's more information. This would typically be the kind of story a cynical local media would seize on as a problem with London's staging of the Games; luckily, Team Great Britain is winning roughly one medal every 20 seconds, so this'll be a footnote.
