Olympics heads will hand out 160,000 condoms to athletes at Tokyo Games… but sex is FORBIDDEN due to Covid-19
The heads of the Olympics will hand out 160,000 condoms to athletes during the Tokyo Games, despite sex being banned due to Covid-19.
Handing out condoms has long been a tradition at the Games.
This year, the 11,000 participating athletes will be discouraged from having sex by the organizing committee.

The measure is a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Obviously, the International Olympic Committee will provide 160,000 condoms for the Games, which were postponed for a year due to the pandemic, meaning there would be about 14 condoms for each athlete.
The committee released a 33-page handbook for the athletes, urging them to maintain social distancing and “avoid physical contact, including hugs and handshakes.”
The committee started this in 1988, partly to prevent the spread of HIV.
In a statement, the IOC defended the move, saying: “Our intent and purpose is not for athletes to use the condoms in the Olympic Village, but to raise awareness by bringing them back to their home country.”
