CWG 2014: A wide range of condoms for athletes

Glasgow: From the halo, clear or opaque to the standard, larger fit or the trimmer fit, athletes at the Glasgow Games have the luxury of a wide range of condoms of their preference using a choice card.

Providing details of as many as 10 varieties including female condoms, the choice cards are on display at over 300 venues from where the contraceptive can be availed free of cost for the world's fittest sportsmen and women from 71 countries who are now living in close proximity for Scotland's biggest sporting extravaganza.

While the 2012 London Olympics were the "raunchiest" with a record distribution 150,000 condoms, the organisers here would be doling out over 84,000 of the contraceptive at a cost of 3,000 pounds being met by the Scottish government.

Condoms were also in the news in the last edition in Delhi when the drains of the Games Village were clogged after the non-biodegradable contraceptives were flushed down lavatories in the first week of the event.
