Get your Games on

It's a wonder the Olympic athletes have enough energy to actually compete in their respective events, given the number of condoms passed out during the Beijing Games.

Olympic organizers are providing 100,000 condoms for roughly 10,500 athletes, according to Reuters. That's about 10 condoms per person (pictured above is an Olympic-themed ad from Chinese condom manufacturer Elasun).

Who knew the Games were a virtual Freaknik?

This, from UNAIDS China spokesman Ole Hansen: "There are many young, strong, single people in the athletes' village and, like everywhere, some will fall in love or other things so we need to make condoms available."

I don't know about falling in love. But given that there are athletes like this running around the Olympic Village, having a healthy supply of condoms is a probably a good idea.
