The Olympics are in full swing, and though there's ain Tokyo, there's one place where you'll catch some epic behind-the-scenes clips from athletes: TikTok.
Many Olympians have been using TikTok to share a peek at the Olympic Village, to the enjoyment of millions of viewers.
"If someone had told me 4 years ago that I would get most insider info from the Olympics on a quasi-Vine-reboot app I wouldn't have believed them," one commenter wrote, referring to the.
"Athletes getting TikToks was the best thing to happen to me this year," someone else commented.
For starters, American rugby player Cody Melphy shared a clip of "Things that just make sense in the Olympic Village," including separate housing for athletes from different countries, a 24/7 dining hall, laundry service, a free Coca-Cola machine and autonomous cars to get around the village.
Melphy posted a follow-up video of the kinds of food available in the Olympic Village, including pizza, pasta, Japanese food and a salad bar.

There are, of course, plenty of jokes about the cardboard beds, which have caused quite a stir.
American volleyball player Erik Shoji confirmed the bed frames are made of cardboard, before offering a demonstration of their sturdiness.
"Tell me you're in the Olympic Village without telling me you're in the Olympic Village, The New Zealand Team TikTok account posted, along with a video of the edge of a bed sinking under someone's weight.
American rugby player Ilona Maher posted a video of various athletes testing how much the beds can handle (surprisingly, a lot).
"I love how all the best athletes in the world are in one place and the first thing they all try to do is break the bed," one comment on the video reads.
New Zealand swimmer Lewis Clareburt showed the various layers that make up the beds.
The official Olympics account has also gotten in on the fun, posting a meme captioned, "Us trying to explain that the beds are made of cardboard because it's more sustainable and not for any other reason," along with audio of someone speaking gibberish.
American swimmer Drew Kibler posted a satirical "what to wear on your first day of school" video, in which he tries on a variety of his Olympics swag.
American volleyball player Kelsey Robinson shared a look at a free nail salon, a florist and a massage relaxation center.
As cool as all the footage is, it's quite surprising to see this unfiltered side of some of the world's best athletes -- and to see just how hooked on TikTok they are, too.
"What exactly is going on in the Olympic Village? Because I thought you were all meant to be superstar athletes -- very focused, always thinking about their sport," TikTok user angiepangie98 says in a video. "The Australians are playing cricket, the New Zealanders are breaking the beds and I don't know what the Americans are doing, but they're all on TikTok. This is messing with my sense of reality."
Olympians: They're just like us.
