Did you know that the Olympians at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics were so close to running out of condoms that they had to send for an emergency supply?
Health officials in Vancouver had already provided 100,000 free condoms to the roughly 7,000 athletes and officials at the Winter Olympic Games. That’s about 14 condoms per person. But as of Wednesday, those supplies started running dangerously low.
The Canadian Foundation for AIDS research decided to step up and make sure there were no hitches in the Olympic action. (Get it Action, Ha Ha, knee slapper.)
“When we heard about the condom shortage in Vancouver, we felt it was important to respond immediately,” said Kerry Whiteside, ANFAR’s Executive Director. The organization assembled three large boxes of about 8,500 condoms, much to the relief of libidos at the Olympic.
So naturally, the Canadian Foundation for AIDS research decided to step and make sure there were no hitches in Olympic action.
Free condoms first started to be distributed at the Olympics in Barcelona at the 1992 Games. This appears to be the first time that a shortage has struck the Games.
So who isn’t having sex in Vancouver!! They definitely can’t say it was all work and no play. Was there a shortage of condoms for the normal population? Did the abundance of the travelers and tourist have enough condoms to accommodate them? Hmm, I wonder!
