Local organizers will give out the most condoms ever for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
The 110,000 condoms for 2018 will be more than the 100,000 each given out during the 2014 and 2010 Winter Olympics, according to Queerty. The total averages out to 37 condoms for each of the 2,925 athletes at the games.
“We are supplying Barunsengkak condoms for athletes attending the Winter Olympics with goodwill, and believe that Korea’s representative condom brand should donate for the event,” a spokesperson for Korean condom brand Convenience said to the Korea Biomedical Review. “We hope to aid the athletes visiting from various countries to complete their events successfully and safely.”
According to the Biomedical Review, 40,000 condoms will be given out at each of the two athletic villages. Another 12,000 will be placed at the press center and the remaining 18,000 will be placed at the 59 stadiums for the games.
Condoms were first given out to prevent HIV during the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea, according to CNN. Over 450,000 condoms were given out during the 2016 Rio Olympics
