But although this year's number is reportedly the highest amount of condoms ever given at any Winter Games, it is not the most number of condoms handed out in Olympics history. SB Nation reported in July 2016 that the athletes at the 2016 Rio Olympics were given a total of 450,000 total condoms throughout the duration of the summer competition (but countries tend to send larger delegations to Summer Olympics, which skews the numbers in turn).
In PyeongChang, organizers have made sure to make the condoms easily accessible to all of the athletes. “Baskets with condoms will be placed at both men’s and women’s toilets at athletes’ villages in PyeongChang and Gangneung, the main press center, the media village as well as medical centers," Olympic organizers have explained.
Convenience Co., the manufacturer of the condoms, said they donated over 100,000 in hopes of “a successful hosting of the Winter Olympics and the prevention of the spread of the HIV virus."
"We don't expect the athletes to use them all," spokesman Chung Geun-sik added. Competitive athletes, however, might take that as a challenge.
