100,000 Condoms For 2014 Olympic Athletes

February 8, 2014

This is just being smart from a health perspective.

In 2010 with roughly 7,000 athletes and officials and 100,000 condoms it translated to 14 condoms per athlete.  But even then the organizers  were running low on condoms and had to make sure supplies were restocked.

As the Winter Olympic Games get underway in Sochi, Russia, the International Olympic Committee has begun its usual practice of dispersing 100,000 condoms to competitors staying in Olympic Village.

A representative for the International Olympic Committee confirmed to TMZ that its group would be distributing 100,000 condoms to the 2,800 athletes staying in Olympic Village over a period of 16 days. “The distribution of condoms in the village is part of the IOC’s involvement in the HIV and AIDS prevention,” an unnamed representative for the IOC told TMZ.

Organizers for this year’s winter games have dispersed the nearly 3,000 competitors from 88 countries into three housing areas that make up Olympic Village. The IOC’s distribution of condoms is not unfamiliar to the Olympic Games. At the 2012 London Olympic Games, women’s soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo told ESPN that “there’s a lot of sex going on” at the games, adding that some players have sex “right out in the open” at Olympic Village, including “on the grass, between buildings, people are getting down and dirty.” The IOC distributed 150,000 condoms at the 2012 Olympics.

    Gee wizz Mr. Putin, sounds like the Olympic Athletes will all be too tired to perform at the games. All except the Russians who aren’t issued 12 condom each.

    Is that this year’s plan for Russian Gold? Hope they are imported condoms. Not Russian. “Opps Sorry Honey, How did I know it was gonna blow while I was given her everything I got?”

    Kids will be kids … out in the open? Someone’s gonna get a wet, cold tushy.

    There are so many jokes that can be made about this…
