A video posted to Twitter shows members of the Polish national volleyball team competing at the 2018 World Championships hopping into cabs presumably heading to a training session.

Lukasz Jachimiak. sport.pl reporter, tweeted the following video expressing his concerns with the organizational shortcomings of the tournament.



Jachimiak captioned the tweet, “The staff goes to training, to the gym. “Who has the money?” Organization of the World Championships in Bulgarian.”

The Polish team hasn’t been impressed with either the organizational aspects of the tournament or the food at the hotel that they’re staying at.

Team captian Michal Kubiak recently came forward to the press complaining about the food at their current hotel, even going as far to make claims that it gave him food poisoning. This all occurred after Kubiak was once again made the headlines after an under-the-net argument between himself, his teammates, and members of the Bulgarian team resulting in the Polish players being the recipients of a middle finger. He and teammate Mateusz Bieniek were also punished after failing to cross the mixed zone after their match with Iran.

Despite the issues surrounding meals and transportation, the Polish team finished the opening round of the tournamenty undefeated and has advanced to the second round. They’re in Pool H with Argentina, France, and Serbia, and suffered their first loss of the tournament 3-2 to the Argentines on Friday in Varna. They still leed Pool H, with results from the opening round of play carrying forward to round 2.
