This Guy's Job Is To Walk Around Olympic Village Handing Out Condoms

In The Olympic Spirit...

The Olympics is when all of the nations on Earth (most of them, anyway) come together to meet and compete, showcasing skill in victory, and the human spirit in both winning and losing alike.

But what about when the competition is done?

Let's say you're a swimmer. You've finished competition but you'd like to hang round to watch Usain Bolt and meet people.

You might want to meet Eric first...

Meet Eric

Meet Eric

This is Eric.

Eric is a very important part of the behind-the-scenes operations in the athlete's village in Rio.

It's his job to walk around giving out condoms.

Let's be honest, there's going to be a whole bunch of swiping right going on in Rio de Janeiro over the time the Olympics runs.

Young, fit, people with the excitement of competition and the thrill of being at the world's premier event! It's bound to make you horny, right?

So Much Rubber!

So Much Rubber!

So thank God we have Eric!

Apparently, the Rio Olympic committee provided 450,000 condoms for the athlete's village. That's a huge number of plastic sheaths! Certainly, far more than any other Games before it...

Quoting an unnamed source at the Games, Eonline reported that there was perhaps a reason why this event was allocated so many rubbers...

“For the most part, these athletes are protected and careful because the condom stock is endless. They are extra careful this year because of Zika," the source said.

“Many of the athletes prefer to meet other athletes on Tinder and other dating apps because that’s easier, and then they do group dates with other athlete friends. Many of these women and men have been out of the dating game or never in the dating game before the Olympics, so it’s a lot to take in for these athletes, especially after training so hard to be here.”
