Olympic Athletes Will Be Given an Insane Number of Condoms in Rio


The Olympics are first and foremost about sports (yes, table tennis counts). But for many of the athletes, the games are also one giant hookup opp. That’s why organizers are supplying the Olympic Village in Rio with 450,000 condoms—42 per athlete. So The Onion was pretty spot-on with this (very NSFW) video from the Sochi Games:

The number of condoms being distributed in Rio is high, even by Olympic standards. It’s an effort by the International Olympic Committee to prevent the spread of the Zika virus. Plus they want to avoid running out like they did during the Athens Games in 2004. Back then, Durex saved the day by donating 130,000 condoms “to smooth the performance of the world’s elite sports people in the arena and under the covers,” the company said.
