British Olympians return home to matching luggage puzzle at baggage claim

LONDON, Aug. 26 (UPI) — British Olympians returning from Rio found themselves faced with a challenge as daunting as the Games themselves — identifying their luggage.

The Team Great Britain members landed Tuesday at London’s Heathrow Airport and headed to baggage claim, where they quickly learned the downside of their team’s matching red luggage.

“Mine’s the red one!!” windsurfer Nick Dempsey tweeted, along with a perplexed-looking selfie featuring dozens of red bags in the background.

“Baggage collection could be interesting,” the official Team Great Britain account posted on Twitter.

“Finding my bag could prove more challenging than the racing,” rower Matt Langridge tweeted.
