LONDON — The prophylactic profiles of the Olympic Village before the London Games revealed a record 150,000 free condoms would be available, which works out to 15 per athlete. (Then again, that's giving Ryan Lochte one share. We may need to recalculate.)
We've heard a lot about them, but haven't really seen piles of rubbers inside the Village. Which is why we value the photo reconnaissance of Australian BMX star Caroline Buchanan, who tweeted the following image (via the News Herald) on Saturday:
"For the gland downunder." Well, at least we were spared a "shrimp on the barbie" double entendre.
Buchanan's message with the tweet:
"Hahah the rumors are true! Olympic Village"
We couldn't help but notice that these are not Durex condoms, which was the company that donated the 150,000 Jimmies to the Olympic Village.
Which means it's entirely possible that Team Australia brought its own supply of prophylactics to the London Games. Which is just another reason we love the Aussies.
