It seems as though the Olympic athletes will be working up more of a sweat off the field than they will on it this Summer. Because apparently behind the scenes of the games, there’s a whole other game where the athletes are playing a different kind of field … each other.
150,000 free condoms have been given out to all the athletes in the Olympic village. That’s 15 for each of the 10,000 competitors from over 200 different countries.
So two weeks, 15 condoms … you’d think they’d want to save their energy!

Which Hope Solo among other athletes noted to be basically an athlete orgy behind the scenes. She even admitted to sneaking a celebrity into her room during the Bejiing Olympics. Reports have indicated that no, it was not Jim Celania.
After watching the US Swim Team’s rendition of Call me Maybe, it’s safe to assume the swim team aren’t the ones using them. They’re busy making videos like this. Though good swimmers should probably consider using them the most. Just saying.
