ATHENS (Reuters) - Athletes at next month's Athens Olympics are expected to go for gold in the bedroom as well as on the field, with 130,000 free condoms being made available throughout the Games.
Condom manufacturer Durex has donated the prophylactics as well as 30,000 sachets of lubricant for the August 13-29 Olympics, "to smooth the performance of the world's elite sports people in the arena and under the covers," it said in a statement.
The condoms will be available to over 17,000 athletes and officials at the pharmacy of the athletes' Olympic village.
"The condoms will come in an individual pack, with an instruction leaflet in various languages," said a spokeswoman for Durex Greece.
"We have discussed the numbers with the organizing committee and we think they are realistic as we know from previous Olympics that athletes do come into contact during the Games."
In the Sydney 2000 Games, each competing athlete was given 51 condoms on arrival at the Olympic Village, but another 20,000 had to be shipped in when supplies began to run low.
The lions sing and the hills take flight.
The moon by day, and the sun by night.
Blind woman, deaf man, jackdaw fool.
Let the Lord of Chaos rule.
I wonder if they'll televise all the Olympics related events...........
If it's like last time you'll have to subscribe to three special pay-per-view channels that will carry all the events. Since I haven't seen that advertised yet I think it's safe to assume it's not an option this time around.
The most beautiful woman I ever saw, was when I was visiting Greece... I will never forget her dark skin... Long brown hair, and bright green eyes... Or the fantastic shiny purple bikini she was wearing
