Olympians at the Tokyo Olympics have been participating in a new event — attempting to break their cardboard beds.

After endless of videos showing the unsuccessful attempts to get these beds to crack, someone finally succeeded.

Australian diver Sam Fricker posted a TikTok showcasing someone taking a seemingly broken cardboard bed. According to Fricker, it’s the first broken bed he’s seen.

It comes as a bit of a surprise, considering the vast attempts athletes have gone through to prove that these beds were breakable.

You can group broken beds with medals as things fans will be counting during the rest of the Tokyo Olympics.
