In spite of my title, the actual Olympic motto is Citius, Altius, Fortius! That’s Latin for: Swifter, Higher, Stronger. Apparently that motto describes the athletes not only in the arena of competition, but between the sheets as well.
As in past games, Olympic officials have distributed more than 100,000 condoms to the 10,500 athletes housed in the Olympic village. That’s roughly 10 condoms per athlete. If you consider that some athletes won’t need them because they’re married, have an alternative lifestyle, or just monogamous, that means that someone is getting a whole lot of nooky. I wonder if the Olympic athletes have some unofficial records for some of the sports they participate in when the lights go out? And don’t you imagine that if they’re getting jiggy with it, they do it with nothing but their medals on? I know that’s what I would do.
Think about this when you’re watching the Olympics this week. When you see that athlete walk off the mountain or ice, aren’t you going to wonder which other athlete they’re medaling with later?
Have a great Monday! ~Phil
