CANDY JACOBS has slammed the ‘inhuman’ conditions she was forced to endure while in a quarantine hotel in Tokyo.
The Netherlands skateboarder was set to make her Olympic debut until she tested positive for Covid-19 upon arrival in the Far East.
That meant the 31-year-old had to watch the contest on television from a hotel room.
Now Jacobs has taken to social media in a since-deleted Instagram video to reveal the conditions she had live in.
The star claimed the window in her hotel room did not open and that by day seven she could not handle it anymore and started protesting.
She refused to move so organisers would allow her to have some fresh air, according to ESPN.
Jacobs said: “Not having any outside air is so inhuman.
“It’s mentally super draining … definitely more than a lot of humans can handle.”
After a seven-hour stalemate, chiefs eventually agreed to let her stand at an open window, under supervision, but only for a quarter of an hour.
The skater said: “Having that first breath of outside air was the saddest and best moment in my life.”
In the post on Thursday, which has now been taken down, Jacobs said that she would be leaving Tokyo and was in the midst of ‘mentally fighting a true battle’.

She wrote: “I will need some time to bounce back from this. Physically and mentally.”
However, by Monday she looked to be fully clear of Covid as she posted a video of her biking on to her Instagram story.
She captioned it with: “Let’s see if I can get this body back in business.”
