It’s hard to hate anything about the Olympics. No matter what your favorite sport is, you can most likely find it on television at some point during the games. This event brings the world together, with every country competing for athletic bragging rights. How much closer together can every nation get? Well, if we look into the Olympic villages, the barracks for the athletes, then we see that they can get much, MUCH closer.
Picture a college dorm, but much bigger, then add athletes from around the world who have one detectable focus in mind: a gold medal. This isn’t all that is carried with them, though; a good portion of these competitors are on some sort of performance enhancing substance, which tinkers with their hormones a bit. So, what do you get when you blend together athletes from different countries, all with raised hormone levels and bodies that only could have been sculpted by Michelangelo? Olympic Games Sex. Lots of it. A recent article published by ESPN explored on the matter (“Will you still medal in the morning?”), with some athletes even weighing in with their own perspective. No one denies it. Some even admit to participating in the shenanigans. Famous U.S. women’s soccer player (goalkeeper) Hope Solo even hinted at being a participant in the extracurricular activity; after mentioning the multitude of sexual encounters, she revealed to ESPN: “I may have snuck a celebrity back to my room without anybody knowing, and snuck him back out. But that’s my Olympic secret.” United States swimmer Ryan Lochte even chimed in with an estimate of 70-75% of Olympians who get straight to the business. He added, “Hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.” At this instance, I can sense everyone purchasing a curling set in an effort to make it to the next Olympic games, and be a part of one of the largest dorm style festivities in the world, containing the best genes on the planet. Yes, I bought one too.
It is always refreshing when the Olympics come around. Every event is so meaningful, so captivating. It is a true environment for triumph and misfortune. Now, a new light is shed upon the athletes, and it causes our interest level to rise even higher. Which one of these athletes had an “adventure” the night before? Who is going to “celebrate” his or her medal achievement with someone else? Our mind can only wander, as we also wonder about how they are able to accomplish some of their feats that we are witnesses to. It is safe to say that in these villages, there are some epic stories/hookups that are being manufactured.
