Winter Olympic athletes to be provided with 110,000 condom

“Baskets with condoms will be placed at both men’s and women’s toilets at athletes’ village in Pyeongchang and Gangneung, the main press center, the medical village as well as the medical center,” organizers told the South China Morning Post

While this year’s figure does mark the most ever to be distributed at the Winter Olympics, it does fall short of the 450,000 made available to athletes during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

Well it was just a mistake....

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea -- Twenty-eight Russian athletes have had their Olympic doping bans overturned, but the International Olympic Committee said they could still be blocked from competing at this month's Pyeongchang Games.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling on Thursday was set to reinstate Russia seven medals from the 2014 Sochi Olympics, including gold in men's skeleton and men's 50-kilometer cross-country skiing.
