An Olympic Scandal!

Enquiries are underway to determine how a bucket of unofficial condoms found its way into the athletes' village.

The Australian BMX cyclist Caroline Buchanan tweeted a photograph of the bucket, which featured a sign reading "Kangaroos condoms, for the gland downunder", and a picture of a boxing kangaroo.
She joked that bucket seemed to back up rumours that the village becomes a hot bed of activity as thousands of competitors complete their events and celebrate after years of working to get to the Olympics – tweeting: "Haha, the rumours are true. Olympic village."

The London Olympic organisers provided 150,000 free condoms in dispensers for the 10,800 athletes at the Games, supplied by Durex which paid for the supply rights.  A Locog spokeswoman said they were trying to find out who distributed the Kangaroo condoms, "We will look into this and ask that they are not handed out to other athletes because Durex are our supplier," said the spokeswoman.

A spokeswoman for Ansell said her company knew nothing about the issue and it could well be a prank. "We have had no official participation or association with the Olympics at all," she said.
Lawrence Boon, the managing director of Pasante, said his company had no involvement with the distribution of condoms in the athletes' village and he suspected it was a prank by the Australian team.

The number of condoms supplied at London tops the 100,000 made available to athletes in Beijing four years ago. In Sydney in 2000 organisers had to order 20,000 more condoms after the initial allocation of 70,000 ran out.

Well that;s it. London is the worst olympics ever. How dare the perpetrators of this outrageous stunt undermine the efforts of the official suppier......

On the other hand the sheer number of johnnies proves that it is not just at the Olympic stadium (and the other venues) where amazing feats of athleticism take place!
