Olympic shooter Russell Mark has suggested 'tons' of gay couples will be rooming together at the Olympic Village, while he and his wife sleep in separate apartments.
According to reports this morning, Russell Mark has been officially informed that he will not be able to room with his partner, Lauryn.
"The stupid part of this, which I have argued to them, is that there are tons of gay couples on the Olympic team who will be rooming together, so we are being discriminated against because we are heterosexual," Mark told News Limited.
Earlier this month the double trap champion raised the ire of Olympic chiefs when he said he would not abide to their decision to ban athletes using sedatives such as Temazapan, that he has used during competition for years.
Lauryn has also courted controversy by posing with her gun in men's magazine, Zoo Weekly. The covershoot is released today.

While it is still not known why the couple will be prevented from rooming together, Russell is adamant they've angered somebody.
"They are p---ed with my stance on sleeping tablets, and what p---ed them more than anything else is the photo shoot which is released tomorrow."
If successful in London, the Marks would be the first husband and wife shooters to win gold at an Olympics.
Each are former Olympians and while Mr Mark tasted the ultimate success in Atlanta in 1996, Mrs Mark missed a medal by one target in Athens in 2004.
