20 July 2012
London: Steroids might be problems for sports boards but organizers of London Olympics are working hard to ensure the proper availability of condoms to every athlete for controlling possible spread of HIV and sexual diseases.
According to reports, the organizers invested millions of pounds on condoms for providing 150,000 protection items in 17-day festival and 15 condoms provided to each resident of Olympic village.
There is no official confirmation of spreading the HIV in any past event of the game but participation of 205 countries maybe turns into a strong reason that’s why Organizers are keen to overcome with any negative situation.
“I thought the Olympics were about winning a medal and representing your country,” a commenter says.
Eight days are remaining in the Olympics but the event facing another controversy after announcing London as venue for the games.
Critics also demand to stop Olympics as it’s time to stop having the Olympics and huge waste of time and resources for the host city, for what amounts to an international egger.
