LOS ANGELES, CA - It looks like Olympic athletes are "scoring" more than ever. The first record of the Rio Olympics was set ahead of the opening ceremony when 450,000 condoms were ordered for the athletes' village.
There are 10,500 competitors in Rio, making that 42 condoms each -- even before Australia, Britain and other nations ordered in extra allocations. The London Olympics were dubbed "the raunchiest Games ever" but a mere 150,000 condoms were allocated to the village four years ago.
The condom story has been a staple of every recent Games.
The first reports stem to Seoul 1988 when 8,500 condoms were distributed. Many were found on the roofs of the village residences leading to an official Olympic ban on outdoor sex. Since then the number of condoms distributed has risen astronomically.
Hey we are all for our Olympians working hard and playing harder, we just hope that with the threat of sexually transmitted Zika Virus, our swimmers double cap it.
