According to a report by Agence France-Presse, the organizing committee of the Tokyo Olympics, last week, planned to hand out more than 150,000 condoms to the world’s top athletes. Well, they requested the athletes to not use them in the Olympic village.
The wire service further mentioned that Japan’s condom industry feared an “anticlimax” at the event, which is expecting to bring more than 11,000 athletes to Tokyo.
An official said, “The distributed condoms are not meant to be used at the Olympic Village.”
Athletes who will be coming to Tokyo this summer will be instructed to continue social distancing. They’ll be asked to bring the condoms to their home countries as a way of raising awareness of HIV and AIDS, Reuters reported.
