Hard bodies in the Olympic Village
Activities for athletes during off hours at the Olympics include: sex, sex, and more sex. And lots of drinking.

At the Albertville winter Olympics, condom machines in the athletes’ village had to be refilled every two hours. And in Sydney the organisers’ original order of 70,000 condoms went so fast that they had to order 20,000 more.

“It’s really a question of ‘which flavour do you like?’,” says swimmer Diebel. “If you like six-packs, see the gymnasts. Like butts? Go to track and field. The only thing you’re deprived of is fat. If you’re the rare athlete who likes sedentary bodies, you’re shit out of luck.”
