Australia's Olympic athletes are off to a tough start in Rio de Janeiro.
Most recently, the Australian Olympic team was reportedly robbed of at least two laptops and team shirts during a fire evacuation Friday.
About 100 team members from Australia's Olympic Village residence were evacuated after a small fire started in the basement. Officials say a lit cigarette tossed into a trash bin caused the blaze but that fire alarms never went off.
