Olympics' village stocked with condoms as athletes arrive

Washington: Barcelona started the trend of supplying free condoms to the athletes competing for Olympic glory in 1992.Tales of shenanigans at the living quarters for 10,000 super-fit young men and women have always abounded, and it doesn’t look as if London will be any different.U.S. women’s soccer star Hope Solo recently spoke about serious partying at the Beijing Games, and some newly arrived athletes say that they can hardly wait for the actual fun to begin.”The Olympics is the height of your career, so you might do some things you don’t usually do,” Fox News quoted British beach volleyball player Shauna Mullin as saying on Wednesday.Most, like Mullin, will restrain from carried away, aware they’re in the international spotlight.According to the man overseeing the health of the Brazilian team, there’s no need to be prudish.”(Sex) is common at the Olympics. It’s necessary. It’s natural,” Dr. Joao Olyntho Machado Neto said.”If you are going to be healthy people, why not make sex? … Brazil is very tolerant with sex as a country. We don’t have Victorian minds and we’re not religious,” Neto said.Ivory Coast swimmer Kouassi Brou was one of the youngest competitors in Beijing at 16, but now that he’s grown up, he is ready for some Olympic love.”In 2008 I was so young and so shy, so I didn’t interact with the women,” the 20-year-old Brou said.”But now I’m a big man. So I can try. I will try.”If they are beautiful, it’s OK,” he said.Thousands of free condoms will be available to the athletes in dispensers around the venue.Organizers have heard enough about village antics from previous games to know that there will be heavy demand by the sportsmen for contraception.Solo recalled seeing competitors having sex out in the open in Beijing.”On the grass, between buildings, people are getting down and dirty,” the 2008 gold medalist told ESPN The Magazine recently.Mullin said that if she witnessed anything racy, she would end up laughing.”I’m pretty sure if I see it, I’ll end up laughing,” she said.Wild parties in athletes’ villages are not new. Many of them live in a world where their every move is followed by the media and they’re delighted to unwind in the privacy of the village, where the outside world is not permitted.ANI
