“The toilets.”

That was Roberto Luongo’s answer when asked what he was most looking forward to in Russia now that his focus has shifted to the Winter Olympic games.

Not the exquisite caviar. Not the balmy Sochi weather. Not the home-brew vodka the locals boast about.

Not even the opportunity to potentially stop native son Alexander Ovechkin with a gold medal on the line.

None of those.

“The toilets.”

That’s what Canada’s defending gold medal goalie wants to see.

We’re guessing he’s seen the photos from the athlete’s village of multiple toilets being placed in the same cubicle.

Or the pics of the loo that is facing a set of three chairs, presumably so that an audience can watch one, um, strut his or her stuff.

Or perhaps he caught wind — no pun intended — of the half-a-loo that was built into the wall, one that you couldn’t open the lid on, let alone sit on.
